Financial Intelligence: A Manager's Guide to Knowing What the Numbers Really Mean

Financial Intelligence Book

Financial Intelligence was written because the authors could not find a book they felt good about recommending to their Fortune 500 training clients. Those books weren’t written the way Business Literacy trains. Based on training tens of thousands of managers and employees at many leading organizations, Financial Intelligence provides readers with a deep understanding of:

  • The basics of financial measurement: understanding income statements, balance sheets, cash flow statements, and more
  • The art of finance: separating hard data from assumptions and estimates, where the numbers come from
  • The mechanics of analysis: calculating ratios, return on investment, and working capital
  • Cash and profit: knowing how these terms differ, and why cash is suddenly the “hot” number in corporate boardrooms and on Wall Street
  • Financial literacy and transparency: recognizing how they can boost performance

Financial Intelligence is accessible, jargon-free, and filled with entertaining stories from real companies. It will help non-financial managers add substantially more to their companies’ – and their own – success. If you have ever wanted to “talk numbers” confidently with your colleagues, this is the book for you.
