Overview

The era of autonomous organisations holding a monopoly position with their product or service is fading and increasingly organisations find themselves in ever more competitive environments where the key to success is not only through internal efficiency, but also by judicious collaboration with suppliers, outsourcing partners and competitors. In order that businesses can operate successfully in the current environment they are being forced to find new approaches to operating through restructuring, changing their organisational behaviour, modifying their internal and external boundaries, and establishing additional techniques for measuring performance.

For today's business analyst to make a valuable contribution they need an awareness of all influences that affect an organisation. This course gives an understanding of those financial and management accounting techniques that are crucial to an organisation both from a legal and administrative perspective. It also explores the social science aspects that are often hidden or not given sufficient priority that will ultimately govern the flexibility and adaptability of an organisation, which determine its ability to survive in today's competitive markets.

At the end of the course delegates may sit an examination to attain the BCS certificate in Commercial Awareness. The cost of the examination is included in the course fee. This course may be taken as part of the Nexus programme leading to the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.
