    Financial Skills

    Financial Skills are fundamental to running a business and for many they are that unfortunate combination of difficult and dull. Luckily, help is at hand, with experienced, friendly trainers who can help to understand what you need to know in a fun and informal way. We can show you how to write a business case and understand your company finances, including profit and loss (P&L) and the company accounts. Stop losing sleep and money.
    Finance for Non-Financial Managers gives you a solid understanding of the fundamentals of financial management. You will gain the knowledge and skills to ably manage your budget, as well as a broad understanding of a company's financial operations. Management decisions rely heavily on a sound understanding of the financial implications to the business. As a result you need to have an awareness of how financial systems work, basic accounting principles and company accounts. Additionally you need to be able to manage your own budget and/or P&L accounts with the confidence to challenge the finance team where necessary and delve into the detail behind questionable numbers
    Make a Business Case enables those with project or line management experience to identify and justify the right decisions using business cases. You will consider what techniques and processes are needed to build a solid, justifiable business case. Along the way you will gain the skills to interpret the data you collect and the practice in putting it together in a compelling and convincing manner. You will also learn how to identify and quantify the costs and benefits to your business case (cost benefit analysis) and will understand how to use payback periods, return on capital, net present value and internal rate of return within your business case

More and more companies and building XML into their enterprise applications and this course describes how to use XML for data modelling and in all facets of applications development and interrogation. Delegates will learn how to use xml to model business data effectively, and use XML to create web-based solutions and e-Commerce systems. 2 Days £1,600
    Transforming XLM using XSLT Style Sheets XML has become a de-facto standard for exchanging data between applications and organisations. The growth of XML has led to emergence of XPath and XSLT as standard ways of accessing and transforming content in an XML document. This course explores the XPath language in detail, showing how to locate XML content by value, position and type. It then shows how to use XSLT to transform XML, HTML or text format such as EDI files. The course also shows how to filter unwanted data, and how to generate new XML content from scratch. 2 Days £400
