Understanding Corporate Finance
- Ratio Analysis

These are the major concepts and tools used in Corporate Finance. If you are an entrepreneur or aspire to the corporate C level suite, you need to understand the basics of corporate finance.
In the past ten years or so, thanks to the efforts of Steve Blank, Eric Ries, Alexander Osterwalder Tim Brown and others, an entirely new way of thinking about and planning startups has emerged. It has been a paradigm shift in thinking about reducing risk and navigating a viable path toward making something customers want.
It is based on the scientific method and proving up guesses about aspects of the business model. Because at the beginning all you have are guesses and admitting that and dealing with it is the discovery. We make our guesses, test them against customers, and course correct based on the feedback we receive.
It seems simple and obvious now. All significant breakthroughs seem obvious after the fact.
Startups is about the different approaches to this new thinking and how they work together.

Entrepreneurship is a set of skills that empower you to conceive of an enterprise as a whole and understand how all the parts fit together and function dynamically.
This is crucial training and perspective not only for people who aspire to quit their jobs and start their own business, but also for ambitious folks who aspire to the C-level suite. You need the big perspective.
Managing and Leading
You need both. Leadership is Vision. Management is Implementation. They are the yin and yang of business.
"Leadership is the art of accomplishing more than the science of management says is possible." Colin Powell
"Vision without execution is just hallucination." Thomas Edison
Learn both. Become a student of the possible.
