1. The problem Francis Halzen faced.

2. The solution to the problem he found.

3. What would you do if you were F. Halzen?


The dirty secret of some top managers

‘The language of finance is difficult, but just      like any language, it can be learned.”

When Francis Halzen set out to build a gigantic telescope at the South Pole, he found himself with a major problem. He had no idea what he was doing. So Halzen hired a team of experts: a project manager to oversee construction, an expert in staging to organize construction equipment and a finance expert to meticulously track the budget using sophisticated computer models.

For new managers in a big corporation, it can be difficult to imagine their small team having much of an effect on the company’s profitability. The first step is to brush up on the basics. For some managers, that means learning how to read balance sheets and develop an understanding of how to compare profits versus cash flow. This will help you decide whether to make an investment in a project, in part based on whether it can help make the company more profitable. Balance sheet newbies should expect a somewhat steep learning curve.

It’s more likely that workers in the United States will know basic financial skills than counterparts across the globe. Nowadays, US colleges and even some high schools are teaching students how to balance budgets. New managers in cultures where bosses are viewed as infallible may also be less likely to ask for help.

Halzen learned a lesson while building his South Pole telescope. He did what good managers do: realized his shortcomings and found the right people to help – and monitored the progress, learning something himself along the way.

“I let the people who knew what they were doing get it done,” Halzen said.
