WORD OF THE AUTHOR

Franck NICOLAS

“This course has been specifically created for anyone wanting to add a “cost approach” to their decision making. Its goal is to familiarise you with the key terms and to describe the main tools used to address the different management control needs.

For example, we will answer the following question: At what price should I sell my product and/or service to make a profit?

There is a relevant cost for each decision. Using this relevant cost, you will learn how to decide which cost method to use to analyse profitability and make the appropriate decision.”

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.”
