Lean Accounting Training Course

Lean Accounting Training Course

You think your business could do better, be more productive.
You want to be part of the improvement, take a role, you want your staff to be part of it, but where to start and how?
What do you need to learn about processes and behaviours?
How can you be certain the results will be SUSTAINED? 

You know that you need to focus on your own departmental processes;
The budget process which takes too long, the expenses process that people seem to get wrong, the long winded procurement and invoicing processes.

You want to be part of the operational team improvements, ensure they see the Finance side and involve you in their strategic thinking.   

With the right training and coaching you and your staff could be involved in ensuring changes are made for the right financial reasons and ensuring you are part of the process.
With the right training you could be delivering your operational workload (reports, budgets, KPIs ) in a fraction of the time and providing greater insight. 

I've spent my life driving my businesses with a series of rear view mirrors [the after the event, end of month historical reports].

Lean Accounting taught me there was a rather large clear Front Windscreen in every business I could have been using.
