Financial control is about providing you and/or your Managers the tools required to satisfy these aspects of yours/their job descriptions; tracking progress and evaluating results!
Yes, you also have to be on top of and in control of other areas of your business such as customer satisfaction and innovation but financial control must be rated as an important objective for your business as it is the ultimate measure of business performance.
Once your strategic planning has been mapped out and the businesses measurable objectives defined, financial control ensures you can accurately report on these objectives and to what extent they have been met, in a timely manner.
When financial controls are in place and working effectively, you or your Managers can take action to correct areas of concern in between reporting periods. This then means that at the end of the reporting period, the results can be evaluated and the success of your strategic planning rated and tracked accordingly.
