Presentation and Analysis of Financial Management Information. 2nd Edition.
Kenton, Jay D.
This book is designed to help financial and other managers of colleges and universities in identifying and responding to the needs of individuals and groups requesting management information. The book attempts to facilitate the communication process through management reports. In addition to guidance on report preparation and data analysis, the book provides guidance on effective presentation techniques, on how to analyze and present information, and on how to assess the adequacy of existing reports and reporting practices. Model report formats are presented to illustrate these processes. The chapters are: (1) "The Nature and Role of Financial Management Information"; (2) "Importance of Monitoring and Reporting"; (3) "Financial Management Information"; (4) "Indicators of Academic Performance"; (5) "Evaluation and Reporting Criteria for Noninstructional Units"; and (6) "Synthesis and Conclusions." Six appendixes contain three sample reports and discussions of motivations and activities, data for strategic management, and a theoretical model for evaluating productivity. (Contains 64 exhibits and 48 references.) (SLD)
