Financial Modelling and Aqua Book
Using analysis is central to decision making. This is reflected in the Treasury’s Aqua Book: Guidance on producing quality analysis for government. Financial modelling is a frequently used method of analysis. Yet the history of government projects is full of examples where errors were made in developing financial models or in interpreting their results.
Financial Modelling and Aqua Book will explain the background to the best practice set out and will show how the common pitfalls in using financial modelling can be avoided. The training will also consider issues of how to deal with uncertainty which arises from the current economic downturn.
This face to face course is from our Financial Management & Commercial Skills series.
