The finance challenge
Understanding the accounting framework is crucial in order to interpret financial information correctly and make informed management decisions. Anyone who wants to contribute to their organisation’s success needs to understand how financial performance is measured and how their actions and decisions are likely to affect the business’s financial outcomes.
However, traditional financial training is often ineffective, because it is too complex, too technical, and frankly too dull. The result is a lack of engagement in finance training, with learning never understood properly in the first instance and quickly forgotten.
"Accounting Intuition's training is a great way for non-finance people to gain a better understanding of the finance function in their own organisations."
We offer a unique approach to learning. Our business simulation models embed the underlying principles of finance in trainees’ minds, and helps them develop an intuitive understanding by enabling them to visualise accounting transactions. And by simulating real business scenarios, trainees can experience how to manage them and apply their learning.
Our training is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and counts towards continuous professional development (CPD) requirements. We offer free online courses, online certification for your employees and instructor-led training. Use our contact form to get in touch with your requirements to discuss if we can help.
Our training is CIMA-accredited and counts towards continuous professional development (CPD) requirements.
Trainees learn through visual, dynamic financial models that remain in the mind’s eye & memory long afterwards.
Learners use simulation software to understand how companies fit together and manage real business scenarios.
