WORD OF THE AUTHOR

Gilles BARJHOUX

“A dashboard is not only a performance measurement tool. It is first and foremost a management instrument that helps the manager, and all of his or her team members, to make decisions and to manage risk in times of uncertainty.

I have developed this course to unlock the secrets of the dashboard: from its methodology to its use, not forgetting how to build the dashboard and keep it up to date.

Because “By planning we make better decisions, and by measuring we make better leaders.”

  • Know how to prepare a funds flow statement under French GAAP (PCG)

WORD OF THE AUTHOR

Michel TERNISIEN

“Analysing a company’s balance sheet and income statement will not provide us with sufficient information to assess the company’s performance. We need the funds flow statement for this.

To really understand this concept, let’s make a comparison with the world of sport, football to be precise. Imagine that I’m a sports commentator and that I need to give a summary of a match that has just finished. I give the final score of the match. This is the balance sheet.

I’m not happy with this information. So I indicate the various goals and when they were scored. This is the income statement.

I’m a bit happier with this information, but not completely. What’s missing? Now I want to understand the strategy behind each goal. This is the funds flow statement.”
