A practical and accessible overview of the fundamentals of business finance--now in its third edition. Managers are constantly expected to make decisions that reflect a full understanding of the financial consequences. In the absence of formal training, few people are prepared for the responsibilities of dealing with management reports, budgets, and capital proposals, and find themselves embarrassed by their lack of understanding. This book is a practical guide to understanding and managing financial responsibilities. Each chapter examines actual tasks managers have to do, from "how to assemble a budget," "how to read variances on a report," to "how to construct a proposal to invest in new equipment," exploring the principles that can be applied to each task, illustrating practical ways these principles are used, and providing guidance for implementation. Guide to Financial Management will help readers understand financial jargon, financial statements, management accounts, performance measures, budgeting, costing, pricing, decision-making, and investment appraisal. This third edition has been fully revised and expanded with detailed examples from 100 leading businesses around the world.

Very little happens in government without money. The real impact of policy pronouncements is only understood when the resources to implement them are known, secured, and spent. Canadian Public-Sector Financial Management is for the student and practitioner of public administration, not the finance specialist. Andrew Graham focuses on understanding the public-sector financial environment and the accounting framework. He moves then to the core elements of the financial management process itself (securing funds or the budget process), managing the spending of those funds (control and in-year budget management and reporting), and evaluating how the funds were spent (internal reporting, external reporting, audit, and oversight). This third edition updates the accounting framework, places a stronger emphasis on risk management skills throughout the cycle, particularly in in-year budget control, and updates external reporting as governments look for different and more useful ways to report their financial and program results.

It is now accepted that IT functions are a fundamental part of the competitive business model. Instead of simply offering services IT must ‘create value’ for the business. This practical title describes the strong financial skills that IT managers must have in order to support: Operations: Finance departments rely heavily on IT managers being able to identify, track and measure costs – sometimes at a very granular level Budgeting: the very technical nature of IT operations means that budgeting can be more complex than many other areas Project Delivery: large technical project deliveries means that costs can be correspondingly complex to account for Business Modeling; pricing models rely heavily on IT managers skills and accuracy. Where one service supports many commercial offerings a strong model is needed to apportion costs appropriately Investment and business cases: a sound understanding of the financial contribution the IT assets make to the overall business is critical to gain support for ongoing investment This outstanding title covers the main financial concepts that managers need to be familiar with in order for IT to take its proper senior place as a contributor to the business. It assumes a basic level of financial understanding and builds on the techniques required almost daily; therefore it is overwhelmingly practical and based on real world scenarios. Not only are the techniques fully described but issues such as - roles, - implementation, - daily management and even - tooling are detailed.
