Looking for recommendations on effective resources for:
1) Understanding the basics of business numbers and financials (think human capital and ERP folks that don't have an understanding about basic financials COGS, operations margin, etc),
2) How to do basic MBA math (calculating COGS, contribution margin, etc) for non financial managers, and
3) understanding the levers of a business that drive the fincial numbers in the financial reports (common levers in manufacturing, services or other industries and how they addressing them will affect the financials) (e.g., in a retail and consumer company, stock outs are a lever that affects COGS)
Any help is greatly appreciated. Trying to help people past a pre-conceived syloed mentality that a functional person doesn't need to understand how what they do affects the overall health of the business.
