Financial Management for Non-Finance Professionals
Strong financial management is the responsibility of the entire project team, but it can be scary when you’re not a financial manager. In this highly participatory course, our expert facilitators show you the key principles for good financial management, how to manage financial resources more effectively, and how to integrate good financial management systems. You will return to your project ready to apply best practices to your own organization.
By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Build and use effective budgets, such as project and donor budgets and cash flow forecasts
- Describe the key processes and methods used to keep accounting records
- Use financial reports to monitor project performance and identify actions to keep project finances on track
- Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your financial management system
- Explain how internal controls protect Organizations assets and minimize the risk and impact of fraud and errors
This course is designed for:
- Staff from the Private, Non-Governmental, and Public Sector who are involved in program implementation and/or the management and control of financial resources
- Non-financial managers and officers who want to improve practice in financial planning, control and reporting
- Finance officers interested in developing their financial management skills and knowledge to improve finance systems and support for program staff
