Week 1: CFO Series-Contemporary Cost Concepts
Field of Study: Accounting
Discussion Leader: John L. Daly, MBA, CPA, CMA, CPIM Executive Education, Inc.
Description: Bad cost analysis leads to bad decision making. Traditional cost accounting provides the average cost of an average product, produced in an average volume and sold to an average customer. Traditional techniques can be disastrously inaccurate when trying to understand products that are not average in every way. This session explains activity-based costing and why it gives your company a competitive advantage.
Week 2: CFO Series-360 Budgeting: Avoiding People Issues
Field of Study: Accounting
Discussion Leader: Robert Mims, CPA The Knowledge Institute
Description: You have a fantastic budget, but certain players are not pleased. Financial plans have a technical component and a human component. We can resolve some of our budget issues by exploring the process’s human aspect. Understanding what makes you and others operate can enhance your understanding of the entire organization and build upon the respect and influence needed to navigate and lead the budgeting cycle. This session includes a case study that measures an individual’s personality type and then explores how to use our strengths and weaknesses to create a better budget process.
Week 3: CFO Series-Cash Management: Strategies for Long Term Success
Field of Study: Finance
Discussion Leader: Paul R. Harrison, MBA, CPA, CFP Executive Education, Inc.
Description: You may not currently manage cash, but cash management skills are likely to affect your future advancement. Poor liquidity can kill organizations or strong liquidity can enable growth. Your skill in managing cash can make you indispensable. This session will discuss cash flow as it relates to banking receivables, payables, debt, equity, profitability, growth and risk. Participants will work through different cash flow cases to understand situations they may encounter in their career.
Week 4: CFO Series-Presentation Skills for Success
Field of Study: Communications and Marketing
Discussion Leader: Don Minges, MBA The Knowledge Institute
Description: We strive to make effective presentations, but this may not be one of our strengths. Presentation skills are essential to effective leaders, especially for CFOs who must tell their company’s story to both internal and external audiences. In this seminar, you will learn; (1) to deliver presentations effectively and with confidence, (2) to take “big picture” information and make it relevant to specific audiences, and (3) to conduct an effective Question and Answer session.
