Corporate Accounting: Hone Your Skills

Description

This session will give you the opportunity to collaborate with other professionals in a hands-on, interactive setting. We have designed corporate accounting as four mini-seminars, providing useful skills for all corporate accounting managers.

Learning Objectives

* Learn how to create efficient accounting processes * Improve your financial statement analysis * Understand activity-based costing * Learn how to develop standards of conduct

Major Topics

Create efficient accounting processes. Accounting managers are often under pressure to cut cost and improve efficiency but have little training in the process design skills that would allow us to make actual improvements. This module will familiarize you with lean-thinking techniques and provide an opportunity to collaborate with others to improve an accounting process. Financial statement analysis: financial ratios are an old-fashioned financial analysis tool. Learn how to do a better job analyzing your companys performance by combining both financial and non-financial data. This is not your fathers financial analysis! Understand activity-based costing. This module will provide a major hands-on costing exercise to allow participants to compare the differences between activity-based costing and traditional cost accounting to understand why accurate costing is important. Develop standards of conduct: corporate standards of conduct are a key element in creating an ethical corporate culture. These standards are sometimes cold, incomprehensible documents, written in legalize and painful to read. This session will provide you a hands-on opportunity to create better ethical standards.
