As finance professionals an important part of our role is extracting, monitoring and interpreting financial information to support decision making and monitor spending.
Financial information can be complex, containing both judgement and jargon.
We need to ‘make the numbers talk’. We need to translate complex information so non-accountants understand what they are looking at and why they should care.
We can meet resistance when discussing financial information. Others might perceive us as only interested in cutting costs or not understanding the operational side of the organisation. Others might see finance as a necessary evil at best or a complete waste of time at worst. Our challenge is to get those people interested.
