PPOL 738 - Economics of Conflict/Violence
This module will consider the role federal financial management leaders play in shaping and implementing federal policies and programs.   Over the past 20 years, federal financial leaders have transitioned from “back  room” to “board room,” playing an increasingly important role in planning and decision-making at the executive level of today’s agencies.  The more recent economic downturn and the large federal deficit have only served to underscore the importance of having timely, reliable and relevant financial information to guide major policy decisions for the future.  We will explore the responsibilities, skills and tools that a financial leader needs to create the well managed, high-performing finance organization. Some of the topics covered will include executive leadership and organizational culture; budgets and appropriations; managing people, processes and technology to reduce risks; and financial reporting, transparency and accountability.  Guest speakers will present specific problems and challenges for consideration.  No background in accounting or financial management is required.
