And yet it is absolutely fundamental to the way we manage our businesses. Quite simply, if you understand how these ratios work, you’ll manage your company’s performance better.
Business ratios are the guiding stars by which you steer your company’s course; they provide your targets and your standards; they direct you towards the best long-term strategies as well as the smartest short-term solutions. Leaving them to the accountants is not an option.
