FINANCE FUNDAMENTALS + GOOD FINANCE MANAGEMENT + MARGINAL COSTING & LEVERAGE ANALYSIS
Anil Lamba on finance
A good financial management system tells you how your business is doing and why.
It is a process that if used correctly, can put your numbers to work and place your business on an even steeper growth trajectory.
