Balanced Economic-Financial Management


The company, considered a living organism, is undergoing a permanent change in its economic and financial status. These changes motivated by the environment, in some cases, and management policies in others, may cause stress conditions on its financial position and difficulties in generating profit.

Therefore, a permanent monitoring of the evolution of economic and financial position is essential in the management; to implement measures aimed at causes that produce unwanted effects.

This course has been restructured into two sets:



Throughout the FIRST BLOCK statements are interpreted as a step absolutely necessary to understand events that have occurred in the company. Determines, in general, the economic and financial health and, therefore, to know and govern the activity. Without a basic understanding of the rules and conventions of the accountant language, a non financial manager is exposed to any eventuality, is virtually “blind” and “dumb”.

The SECOND BLOCK analyses the health of the company through the economic and financial parameters and the effects arising due to decisions taken by non financial departments.

The business passes inexorably by the evolution of its economic and financial position. Both positions have in common features refereeing to the final goals of the company, and both also have to know how to balance in order to fulfil the mission to stay on the profitable path, financially sound. This path is the best, and a guarantee of assurance and continuity.

Based on the accounting information over a period, the diagnosis can correct the pathologies that impede the normal operation of the company.

The Model of Economic and Financial Position (EFP) is a highly predictive tool because it allows to:

-              Determine the current financial and economic status

-              Indicate the path being made by the company

-              Put the basis to correct the route in cases that do not evolve in a balanced way.

It is precisely this anticipatory vision which gives the greatest interest to the model, produced before the first signs of crisis appear, they are embodied in the tour, showing the kind of causes that generates them: economic and / or financial statements.
