Developing financial acumen is critical for every business leader. In this program, Dr. Lamba familiarizes you with financial concepts and principles every business leader must understand in order to take financially intelligent decisions.

In his easy-to-understand style, Dr Lamba will explain complex financial principles in a simplified manner.

Modules 1, 2 & 3 are intended to lay a strong foundation for understanding the financial principles discussed in subsequent sessions.

Using jargon-free language, Dr Lamba introduces the two most important financial statements, and eliminates a number of misconceptions usually associated with commonly-used-yet-often-misinterpreted terms.

Module 1: Understanding Financial Statements:In this session Dr Lamba introduces the P/L A/c and B/S, explains how to make these statements with the help of a three-minute formula, demystifies the two dreaded words, Debit and Credit, that create confusion in the minds of many and discusses the similarity and distinction between terms like Expenses, Assets, Incomes and Liabilities.


Module 2: What is Profit:Every business is run with the objective of making profit. However the term itself is often misconstrued.
In this session Dr Lamba explains the 'concept of profit', and takes a philosophical look at the role of 'Expenses' and the part played by 'Inventory' in arriving at, and sometimes manipulating, profit.

Module 3: A closer look at the Balance Sheet: This video takes a closer look at the structure of a Balance Sheet and discusses the various items in detail, explains how Liabilities represent 'Sources' and Assets 'Uses', how organizations raise resources and the expectation of each lender, where the money is invested, the need for working capital and its components.

Modules 4 & 5

The usual perception is that it takes years to learn how to make Profit and Loss Accounts and Balance Sheets. Dr Lamba teaches, in a very quick and simple way, how to make these financial statements in, both, the accountants' as well as laypersons' way.

Module 4: Making a Balance Sheet - without any knowledge of accounting:Ever felt the need to make a Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet, but found yourself at a loss as to how to proceed? In this module Dr Lamba will show you the easiest and most logical way to prepare these statements without even an elementary knowledge of accounting.


Module 5: Making a Balance Sheet - the accountants' wayIn this module Dr Lamba explains the intricacies involved in the making of the two basic financial statements from an accountants' perspective. Using an example, he illustrates how to pass journal entries, post them into ledger accounts, make a trial balance and eventually the Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet.

Modules 6, 7 & 8

Financial mismanagement is responsible for most business failures the world over. Even the global economic meltdown towards the end of the first decade of this millennium is primarily attributed to financially disastrous decisions.

In the next 3 sessions, Dr Lamba gives his mantra of Good Finance Management and expounds on his Two Golden Rules.

Organizations that abide by these rules achieve sustained growth and success and those that violate can suffer serious consequences.

Module 6: Two Rules of Good Finance Management: An Overview
Since Bad Finance Management is the single most important cause of business closure, it is essential for every organization to practice Good Finance Management in order to survive and prosper.
In this session Dr Lamba explains that Good Finance Management is the collective responsibility of each person in the organization and gives a brief introduction of the two rules.

Module 7: Rule 1 of Good Finance Management: Managing Profitability
Dr Lamba explains the concept of Cost of Capital, explodes certain myths associated with the term, and emphasizes how it is critical to ensure that organizations generate returns that are at least equal to the Weighted Average Cost of Capital.


Module 8: Rule 2 of Good Finance Management: Managing Cash Flow
In this module, besides elaborating on the second rule of good finance management, which revolves around effective cash flow management, Dr Lamba also explains how to read a Balance Sheet.
