Accounting and Entrepreneurship
ACCOUNTING, FINANCIAL and CASH FLOW MANAGEMENT, PLANNING and BUDGETING and ENTREPRENEURIALISM
The Financial Management module targets the discipline and concepts of what is financial management. Financial management is all-encompassing and embraces both the asset and liability sides of an organization. Although the financial manager, a senior position on par with the CFO and Treasurer, they are not engaged in the accounting functions nor that of auditing, for example, he/she is integrally involved in most aspects of deriving the net income.
The IASB’s Framework for the preparation and Presentation of Financial Statements describes the basic concepts by which financial statements are prepared. It provides a guide to the IASB in developing accounting standards and as a guide to resolving accounting issues. On the other hand, the Cash Flow module targets the discipline and concepts of what is cash flow management.
What drives any company’s success, in the long run, is its ability to handle and manage cash flow. Ordinarily, the management of cash falls under the cash flow/treasury manager, however, the role of the financial manager or the concept of financial management is very directly involved as is the CEO/CFO.
Many people aspire to become an entrepreneur, however very few succeed because of the inability to grasp all the nuances and subtleties and requirements to be successful. Being a successful entrepreneur is considerably more than having a good idea of whether it be to offer a service or to sell a product. Many who aspire to become an entrepreneur, mostly in the 20 to 30’s age group, may look back to the dot.com era with nostalgia and consider it possible to duplicate. Different industries/entities are all unique and each of its business segments have their own revenue and expense structures. However, from a budgeting and planning perspective, there is no difference between industries. Like any other five-year business planning model, the sources of revenue need to be determined and projected based either on economics or strategy.
The methodology presented that by definition incorporates the choices about what information and data to gather in order that he/she as a Financial/Cash Flow Manager or Accountant makes an economically sound decision. And, the choices about how to analyze the information and data derived.
