All managers, whether brand new to their positions or well-established in the organizational hierarchy, can use a little "brushing up" now and then. The skills-based Briefcase Books series is filled with ideas and strategies to help managers become more capable, efficient, effective, and valuable to their organizations.
While they don't need the knowledge of a CPA, all managers must still have a basic understanding of how money is tracked and accounted for in an organization.
Using the sidebars and down-to-earth style that has become the Briefcase Books trademark, Accounting for Managers defines essential terms--from general ledger to chart of accounts--and, more importantly, discusses their applications in everyday business. It also introduces managers to popular accounting software programs and their use in tracking and allocating funds in the organization.
