In themodern business environment it is essential that managers are fully aware of the financial consequences oftheir actions and how external stakeholders may interpret financial reports. A key element in management'sawareness is the internal monitoring of performance, using all tools available, to ensure a 'true and fair'message is given.This module will initially use accounting history and theory to evaluate the influences on contemporaryfinancial reports. It will then utilise traditional uni-variate analysis to evaluate financial performance, beforemoving on to market reports, non financial data and multi-variate analysis.Finally the module will consider principle techniques for monitoring corporate performance from an internalperspective. One of the main focuses for the design of this module has been the further development ofrelevant employability and professional skills. Such skills are implicit in the learning outcomes.
