Making The List

The Big Picture

If your employees ever grumble about not having the most up-to-date equipment, the CD-ROM "Why Finance Matters!" could help them understand how financial decisions impact the company's bottom line.

Developed by executive training company Strategic Management Group Inc. (SMG) in Philadelphia, the CD-ROM explains concepts such as cash flow, balance sheets and the need to create shareholder value.

According to Clark Callahan, a senior consultant with SMG, it's crucial that employees understand financial decisions because each employee comprises a significant amount of the business's value.

Generic versions of the program cost $500; customized versions start at $20,000. You'll need a Pentium 75MHz; DOS 6.0; 8MB RAM; Windows 3.1 or higher; an 8-bit sound card; and 5MB available hard-drive space.
