KCQ’s (step two)

Key concepts and Questions (step two)


Reading my firms annual reports was a difficult challenge to prevail from. I have never previously read a financial report, in fact I had never read a report 112 pages long before. My firms report had a large amount of company information and company values in their spreadsheet. One of the most interesting parts for me in the report was the Chairman and CEO report. This particular section was very interesting because it contained graphs of the ‘Year at a Glance’ and highlighted the most important areas of business for the company. Design-Build-Operate Strategy, Sales Focus and Delivery Excellence, Industry Alignment, Board of Directors and People Strategy were the important and most main areas of the business process to me.
