“Invite people to think like business owners – so they can base their future decisions on sound business thinking.”

Celemi Apples & Oranges™ brings financial statements to life through its simple, profound model of a company.

Participants form the incoming management team of A&O Inc. – an established company that is facing some tough challenges. The company is losing market share and there are increasing demands from suppliers and customers. A&O Inc. needs a new, disciplined financial strategy.

Teams learn how to monitor cash flow, make resource utilization improvements, and measure results in the balance sheet and income statement.

Participants of all experience levels are able to gain new skills or build on prior experience to:

  • 
Read and interpret financial statements.
  • Identify critical elements affecting profitability.
  • Analyze financial ratios and key performance indicators, and make priorities accordingly.
  • Participants will explore the cause-and-effect relationships that govern a company’s financial statements – and develop an intrinsic business sense that will govern their future decisions in every day work.
