Learn How to Read and Make a Balance Sheet

Making your business successful involves, not just strategies, products, and people but also finances. Then what is the foundation of a successful business? The bedrock is money and its management. In formal language, it is called Financial Management. However, the term scares many people away and tricks them into thinking that those working in the finance department should be the ones to know how to manage the organization’s money. It is unfortunate that this assumption has been the reason for losses made by so many organizations.

This assumption has long been challenged by Dr. Anil Lamba who is an acclaimed corporate trainer. Dr. Anil Lamba is a practicing chartered accountant and holds degrees in commerce, law and a doctorate in taxation. Dr. Lamba conducts training programs internationally, in countries such as India, USA, Europe, Middle East and the South Asia-Pacific. There are some 2000 clients who have availed of his expertise and range from large to medium-sized corporations.

In his bestselling book ‘Romancing the Balance Sheet’, he explains how each employee’s actions or decisions impact the bottom line of the organization. Dr. Lamba defines the concept further by saying that, “Financial management is merely the ability, on the part of EVERY individual… to understand the financial implication of EVERY action”.

All those in sales, operations, administrative department among many other departments, should have an understanding of accounts and by that Dr. Lamba means explicitly – being able to read and make a Balance Sheet. A Balance Sheet is an accounting statement of the organization which helps one to gain an understanding of the health of an organization. How will reading or making a Balance sheet help employees? It hones an employee’s “ability to take financially intelligent decisions [and] that is what financial management is all about.”

Dr. Lamba is keen to promote the topic of financial literacy among corporate professionals who may or may not have a finance background. He has hosted a webinar through Learno, (an online course marketplace which focuses on making high-quality instructor-led courses available to everyone across the world) on ‘Romancing the Balance Sheet‘.
