For business managers, this guide outlines how to measure corporate performance and select the best measurement tools for the accounting, engineering, logistics, production, and sales departments. About 200 measurements are presented involving finances, efficiency, effectiveness, capacity, and market share, as well as asset utilization, operating performance, cash flows, liquidity, capital structure, return on investment, and market performance. They are presented with a description, explanation of the calculation, an example, and cautions when using. This edition includes about 50 new ratios and formulas, with new chapters on those used in e-commerce and human resources. It uses Microsoft Excel to describe how to use an electronic spreadsheet to assemble a standard set of measurements. Bragg, the author of many accounting books, has been the chief financial officer or controller of four companies and consulting manager at Ernst & Young.
