Welcome to The Finance Compass

I’ve been thinking about starting a blog to discuss finance and accounting issues and decided what a better time to start than 2010!  The past year has been fraught with challenges for everyone and now more than ever it is so important to share ideas and get an open dialogue going on what we need to do to make business better.

Although this blog is aimed at finance and accounting, my intent is to make it not overly technical so the content can be valuable to anyone in business regardless of position.  I also realize many of my accounting and finance counterparts will be familiar with some of the concepts and materials I present here.  Often times though, we get caught up in the way we’ve always done things and we forget about things that can make our lives easier or can bring improvements to our business.  Hopefully the posts in this blog will jog your memories and prompt you to go back to explore the things you know.

Starting this week, I will be posting a series about budgeting and related measurement tools.  I know that for many companies the budgeting process is months away but I believe it is vital to start thinking now about how to make it better.  We all know once the budgeting cycle starts, it is too crazy to take a step back and ensure we are headed in the right direction, and that the fruits of our labor will actually mean something.

I welcome all of you to The Finance Compass and trust you will find it informative, thought-provoking and a “must read”!
