At last week’s Entrepreneurship 101 lecture, Andrew Graham, Senior Director, Corporate Development at George Weston Limited, made sense of what is often seen as a rather complicated subject.
His lecture dissected the basic tools of financial planning:

This lecture used several case studies to show how companies forecast growth both successfully and unsuccessfully.
