ROBERT ARMACOST, ENGAGEMENT DIRECTOR, IKNOW LLC — Every knowledge management (KM) initiative needs to showcase results and business impact. Unfortunately, many organizations have no agreed business measures for their KM programs, and focus on metrics reporting without actually understanding whether value is being realized. Getting it right demands linking programs and investments directly to business outcomes, and reporting to leadership in terms they can comprehend.

Financial metrics are the key numbers that you can focus on in financial statements. There are three financial statements, the balance sheet, the income statement and the cash flow that we like to look at to find important metrics. http://bit.ly/2xOCmRl Were going to look at some of the most important financial metrics that you as investors can use to evaluate a company. The first important number we look at on the balance sheet is liquidity. Can the company you’re looking at really cover everything that they need to cover in the next year? Or have they somehow overloaded themselves with short term debt and obligations that they could really run out of cash in the next year? In order to evaluate this, we want to look at the current ratio. Essentially it is a measure of working capital. It compares the current assets, which are assets that can be turned into cash in the next year, with current liabilities, which are obligations that have to be paid in the next year. What you want to look for when evaluating a company is a 2:1 ratio of liquidity to debt. Some companies are very well run that have a lower ratios than that, because they are controlling their cash very well, or they are in an industry that isn’t growing fast so they don’t need as much liquidity. These companies work their capital down so they don’t need as much cash on hand all the time and they can give that money to their shareholders. You will know that these companies are very well run because, they are really big companies. Most companies, particularly smaller companies need at least a 2:1 ratio between current assets and current liabilities. That’s a great measure of liquidity. We call that the liquidity metric.

Part 10 of 12 Supply chains are tasked with being effective, efficient, and adaptable. While the best companies on earth claim to have strong supply chains, it is only via performance measurement that managers and executives can truly prove the strength of their supply chains. Also, since continuous improvement is a business imperative, managers are constantly being asked to demonstrate positive outcomes and consistent improvement quantitatively. This module introduces the multi-layered world of performance measurement and its relationship to world-class supply chain management. This is the 10th installment in Arizona State University's twelve-part introduction to supply chain management video series developed by Eddie Davila, Jeff Hough, Randy Cates, Dawn Feldman, Dan Ichikawa, Ian Schmoel, and Matt Hardy. ASU, the W. P. Carey School of Business, and the Supply Chain Management Department are proud and happy to share this video series with supply chain management departments, supply chain instructors, career specialists in high schools and universities, as well as industry leaders in an effort to inspire a new generation of supply chain management professionals across the country and around the world.

The books can be found at the following location: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0982967624/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0982967624&linkCode=as2&tag=pypull-20&linkId=EOHYVY7DPUCW3WD4 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1939370159/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1939370159&linkCode=as2&tag=pypull-20&linkId=XRE5CA2QJ3I2OWSW Use the intrinsic Value Calculator at: http://www.buffettsbooks.com/intelligent-investor/stocks/intrinsic-value-calculator.html In this lesson, students learned that the intrinsic value can be defined as the discounted value of the cash that can be taken out of a business during it's remaining life. For us, we've defined the life as the next ten years. This way, we can discount that cash by the 10 year federal note. The Cash that we are taking out of the business is simply the dividends and the book value growth during the next 10 years. Since these numbers need to be estimated, it's very important to ensure that Warren Buffett's third rule (a stock must be stable and understandable) is met. When a company doesn't have a history of linear growth, estimating the cash that they will produce for the next ten years becomes more speculative. When we look at the root of the intrinsic value calculator, it operates off of the same principals as a bond calculator. Instead of using coupons, we substitute dividends. And instead of using par value (or value at maturity) we estimate the book value of the business in 10 years. The value that we use to discount the summation of the cash is simply the 10 year federal note. Although the previous paragraph might sound confusing to some, it's application is fairly straight forward. The reason Buffett says, "Two people looking at the same set of facts, will almost inevitably come up with at least slightly different intrinsic value figures," is due to a difference in opinion of the future cash flows. Since some investors are more conservative than others, their estimates of book value growth or dividend payments may be lower. This will immediately change the intrinsic value. Your job as an intelligent investor is to determine your own tolerance for risk and conservative estimates on how much money you will receive while owning the stock for a 10 year period.

About the Presentation Organizations are increasingly investing in enterprise social software, which provides collaboration tools such as communities and people profiles, to support their business goals. For many, however, the practical impact of such technologies is unclear. Companies struggle with insufficient usage to demonstrate meaningful impact and have difficulty comparing performance with social technology to performance without. This webinar will provide research-based guidelines that can help companies understand: whether a technology investment has been worthwhile; which areas of the company have gained value from it; and which areas of the company have seen no improvement. Attendees will learn: how to address user adoption issues to improve impact; and how to identify business metrics they can use to compare performance before and after adopting social technology. About the Speaker Suzanne Livingston is a product manager at IBM, where she manages a team of product and offerings managers in IBM’s Enterprise Social Solutions division, which encompasses mail, chat, meetings, audio/video, cognitive computing, social technologies, and more.

You know that testing and quality are important, right? Okay, prove it. Exactly how much money do you think testing saves? Yes, that’s right saves. Testing is often thought of as a regrettable cost center, something that must be funded to avoid some dimly-understood “bad stuff that could happen.” In fact, software testing and other quality assurance activities save money. Typically, every dollar spent on testing saves eight dollars in the long run. In this One Key Idea session, Rex will demonstrate the use of cost of quality, a technique known for over 50 years, using a real world case study and a spreadsheet you can download and use that same day.

Do you know what metrics to care about when growing your software company? In this video, I share the top 5 metrics you should pay close attention to and how to calculate them to see the truth. Are you an entrepreneur?

If not, probably best to skip this video... ... but don’t worry, next week I’m going to share a killer strategy on how ANY business owner can grow their company by “drafting” on other people’s hard work. Simple strategy, but powerful results. However, if you ARE a SaaS entrepreneur, then let’s talk numbers. Every day I get someone asking: “What are the key metrics I should be monitoring in my startup?” Even though it’s a loaded question, when it really comes down to it... ... there’s really only 5. I call them the 5 C’s of SaaS metrics. One of the most critical ones you should be tracking is CMRR (Committed Monthly Recurring Revenue) Hint: Many founders forget to take out a few items that don’t count, and in turn artificially inflate their numbers. Which leads to bad data, informing WORSE (and potentially crippling) decisions. Not good. Knowing the 5 C’s to track is half the battle. Knowing HOW to track them is what gives you game-changing performance, quarter after quarter. That’s what I go over in this week’s video. One of the most challenging aspects of discussing metrics is ensuring that everyone is measuring them in the same way. For example, when I was meeting with VC’s raising money for my startup Flowtown, we encountered several investors that calculated Churn or Customer Lifetime Value differently. As a founder, that lack of standardization can get confusing (and costly)... ... that’s why I love what Andreesen Horowitz has done in 16 Startup Metrics. http://a16z.com/2015/08/21/16-metrics/ They’ve documented exactly how to define ALL major metrics, and how founders need to present them. But here’s a question for you. What’s your favourite metric? Leave a comment with your answer. For my buddy Nathan - one of his favourites is Expansion Revenue... it’s a great one. What’s yours? “What gets measured gets managed.” Peter Drucker Look at these numbers daily. Use them to guide your product roadmap. That’s what makes a great founder. Discipline. Keep up the good fight!

You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale.

How To Maximise Company Value This video explores the link between leadership and company value and how it can be assessed in the M&A process. One of the key reasons to build a business is to create value so it can be sold. When businesses are being sold the value of the customer base is critical to optimising company value. Most companies rely upon past financials and accountants to determine the valuation of the business and this process does not allow for the future intentions of the customer base. Today there is a lot of activity in the M&A market and there are major challenges with the valuations that are calculated. The statistics are concerning with 1/3 of all M&A transactions failing to deliver, 1/3 have no positive impact to bottom line and share price and 1/3 achieve the results they were expecting. The challenge is often due to poor commercial due diligence and the wrong theories of measuring customer value. It’s essential to assess the revenue risk of future customer transactions and the methodology must allow for repeat business, referrals and wallet share. Understanding what creates unshakable customer loyalty is one of the biggest assets a company can build, having the correct process to measure and increase revenue based upon customer loyalty ensures the revenue risk of a company is dramatically reduced.

Transcript: 1 Looking at the Circular Flow of Income, 1 We see that stuff just gets transformed in different stages. 1 Firms use factors of production from households, 1 Perform some magic, 1 And Tada! You get goods and services 1 These are sold back to households. 1 Households pay for these stuff too, 1 Which reflects the value of these goods. 2 So this arrow, the National Expenditure, 3 And this arrow, the National Output. 4 Should be roughly equivalent. 5 Because when firms sell goods to households, 6 It's just goods transformed into money 7 Hey, where does all this money on spending come from? 8 It comes from income made by the households. 9 So this arrow, the national income, 10 also equals to national expenditure. 11 We see that National Income = National Expenditure = National Output. They are just in different stages of the Circular Flow of Income. 12 So how do we measure GDP? 13 We can measure the total output, the total final goods and services. 14 Why only final goods and services? 15 Take the production of sandwiches for example. 16 First, we need labor 17 to harvest wheat, 18 then wheat goes into the production of flour. 19 Flour goes into the production of bread, 20 And bread goes into the production of sandwiches. 21 We then sell the sandwich at $5. 22 Tada! GDP equals to $5. 23 This $5 already includes the value of labor, flour, wheat and bread 24 that went into the production of sandwich. 24 We don't have to add these things again. 25 See, if you add the value of these things, 25 On top of the sandwich, (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15 ) 26 It's $15, way higher than $5. 27 Because you've double-counted, and it's wrong. 28 Alternatively, we can use the value-added approach 28 We measure the additional value that is created in every stage of production. We start from zero. Labor doesn't require any other input. So labor itself is pure value. Using this labor, we grow wheat. Wheat is sold at $2. What is the additional value created? Remember we got to minus the cost of production which is labor. So $2 - $1 = $1 $1 of additional value created. Using wheat, we make flour. Flour is sold at $3. What is the additional value created? We got to minus the cost of production which is wheat. $3 - $2 = $1 $1 of additional value created. Do the same for the rest Bread adds value to flour. And sandwich adds value to bread. Add up all the additional value created by each stage of production, We get $5 as well. Wow! 29 You see, Output approach and value-added approach are quite similar. 29 In value-added approach, you add up all the additional value 30 Which is just the value of the final output. 31 Hey, that's not the only way to measure GDP… 31 If you like this video, remember to like and subscribe. 32 Next up: measuring GDP: Expenditure and Income Approach. _____________________________________________________ How do we measure the size of the economy? We can calculate the total output produced. Why do we only count FINAL goods and services towards gross domestic product (GDP)? What's double-counting? What is the difference between intermediate goods and final goods? Important definitions: Gross Domestic Product or GDP is the total value of all final goods and services produced within the borders of a country during a given period.

What do EBIT and EBITDA mean? How to calculate EBIT and EBITDA? Why are the financial metrics EBIT and EBITDA important to measure the financial success of a company? Why do some companies use EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes) and others EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization)? What is the purpose of the financial statements of a company: income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement? What are EBIT and EBITDA used for in business? Both EBIT and EBITDA are measures of profitability, along with terms like gross profit and net income. They are reported in the income statement (or "Profit & Loss statement", "P&L"), an overview of the profit or income that you generate during a period. To calculate EBIT and EBITDA, many companies would present their income statement in the following way: Revenue minus Cost Of Sales equals Gross Profit. Gross Profit minus S,G&A and R&D equals EBITDA. EBITDA minus Depreciation & Amortization equals EBIT. EBIT minus Interest and Taxes equals Net Income. Please be aware that different companies use different terminology, so what you see here might be different from what your company is using. EBIT is Earnings Before Interest and Taxes. Interest is excluded, as it depends on your financing structure. How much did you borrow, and at what interest rate? Taxes are excluded, because it depends on the geographies that you work in. EBITDA is Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. Just like EBIT, it excludes Interest and Taxes. Furthermore, depreciation and amortization are excluded, because they depend on the historical investment decisions that a company has made, not the current operating performance. EBITDA is a meaningful metric for capital-intensive industries. In the video, we look at an example of using EBIT and EBITDA in financial reporting, by reviewing the 2015 annual report of the Maersk Group (CPH: MAERSK-B), a company headquartered in Denmark and operating globally. What do business and finance people use EBITDA for? Besides being a metric to represent ongoing operating performance, it is often mentioned as part of M&A (or Mergers & Acquisitions) news. A quick-and-dirty way to calculate the value of a company is by using a multiple of EBITDA. This can help you to get to a ballpark number, but I would advise to always do a more thorough analysis and a more thorough valuation of a company, as there are a lot of “ifs” connected to using an EBITDA multiple… you are assuming the profitability and the industry does not change, you exclude the impact of working capital (which could go up dramatically for a fast-growing company), and you exclude the cash that you need for capital expenditures on an ongoing basis for the company.

Leadership has to reside in the private sector, and the key thing the private sector has to ask for from policy makers and politicians is a change in the way we measure the economy. This is the belief of Pavan Sukdhev, visiting fellow at Yale University and author of the book "Corporation 2020: Transforming Business for Tomorrow's World" (Island Press, 2012). In this video, Sukdhev explains just what is needed to create the 'green economy', which will provide sustainable profits for companies without damaging natural, societal or human collateral. He makes a plea for a wholly new measurement framework that assesses whether a firm's 'externalities,' e.g. its impact on people and the planet, are positive or negative. http://l.fsinsight.org/V7f0gi

Despite the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, many colleges say they struggle to convince employers to take on apprentices. But what if your college could articulate to employers the value of your apprentices, including the return on investment and increased workforce productivity they bring to business? The good news is that our new Apprenticeships Economic Impact Study does just this. So why not join Anthony Horne on this free webinar, as he talks to Adam Sangster, SRM Market Insight Lead at Leeds City College, about why they have just commissioned a study, and what benefits they hope to get from it.
