AFP Digital Badge: Critical Thinking for Finance


Finance professionals are no longer expected to only present the numbers and statements. Leadership is becoming more dependent on the finance team to provide thoughtful insights and decisions with the information it presents.

This course focuses on critical thinking skills, financial data analysis and systems thinking to improve value-added decision-making. Participants are introduced to performing value-added financial data analysis with a focus on critically analyzing data versus naive data gathering. Discussions evaluate the different methods utilized in the problem-solving process with an emphasis on situational awareness and continuous evaluation. Participants understand how to identify trends and “stories” in the data that are important for improved decision-making.
