Analyzing Financial Statements for Non-financial Professionals
Financial statements of an organization often conceal more than they reveal. Being able to analyze them and extract meaningful information is an essential skill that financial as well as non-financial professionals should have. Ratio analysis can be used to determine relationships between two elements of the same financial statement, or between one element of one financial statement and another element of a different financial statement.
