How can you increase your value as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), identifying and analysing the critical performance and results based-metrics to assist in proactive decision making?

It’s no secret that “the numbers” can be intimidating to owners and managers. You can provide enormous value by removing this fear and bringing clarity to the important information that “the numbers” are telling.

This webinar is a refresher of the main variance analyses, starting from the “why,” “how” and “when” to use them, to their application in both service and manufacturing industries. Whether you are a novice or want to fine tune your skills in Cost-Volume-Profit (CVP) analysis, this webinar will walk you through how these analyses are valuable tools, not only in understanding the numbers, but in explaining what they mean, leading the organization to better forward decision making.

Additional options and pricing may be available. See pricing and registration for more details.
