A Queensland public sector entity case study will be developed and used to bring to life these financial concepts in a practical and easy-to-understand way and apply the learning objectives covered in the course.
Participants will be guided through the various components of a Queensland public sector annual report, including tips and techniques on how to read, analyse and draw conclusions about the financial statements. A range of interactive and hands-on activities will require participants to work together to analyse the financial statements and identify financial strengths, weaknesses and concerns of the entity.
