Have you ever found yourself leading a major project, but didn’t understand the accounting cycles behind it? It’s like being in a foreign country and not understanding the language and culture. A failure to understand the monetary flows and cycles may lead to customer dissatisfaction, major scope creep, project delays, and cost overruns.

Companies are in business to make money. The financial transactions and cycles are the life blood of an organization. They move the money between the departments, customers, and vendors and right through to the financial statements.

This seminar is developed for project managers who have limited accounting knowledge or people who want a refresher. A good working knowledge of accounting is critical to successfully understand, implement, and maintain business applications, such as
  • Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
  • Manufacturing & supply chain management (SCM)
  • Human resources (HRIS) & payroll
  • Customer resource management (CRM)
By understanding the dynamics between the money and business flows, you’ll be able to enhance your career by cultivating better working relationships with finance, audit, and accounting professionals. You’ll learn how to “think accounting” while witnessing the physical flows of material, people, and services throughout an organization.

You’ll Learn:
  • The language of accounting
  • Debits, credits, and all those “T” accounts
  • Four financial statements & their relationships
  • Month end close process
  • Internal controls & best practices
  • Sales and collection cycle
  • Payroll and personnel cycle
  • Acquisition and payment cycle
  • Inventory and warehouse cycle
