ABOUT THE SEMINAR

Understanding the organisation, mission, vision and strategy:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where do we want to be?
  • How are we going to get there?

Determine the financial implications of strategic plan by examining ‘how are we going to get there?’ and the associated risks.

Formulating the organisation’s financial strategy by:

  • understanding current business model (sources of income and expenses, reserves)
  • determining the resources required to implement the strategic plan
  • tabulating the financial resources required and its impact on the reserves
  • identifying the financial risks

Once the financial implications of the organisation are established, the senior management and board need to adjust their business model and operations, strategic plans to ensure the organisation’s medium and long term sustainability.
