      It is imperative  to  understand  the  subject  and  language  of  finance  if  managers  are  to communicate with authority within a business. After all, finance is the language used in the board room. Without a grasp of some basic financial concepts, it can be easy to take what  appears  to  be  a  wise  decision,  but  one  that  nevertheless  is  ill  informed  and one that adversely affects the financial health of the business. These unintentional own goals happen every day in every business and at every level.
