Over the last 15 years the team at Accounting Comes Alive have pioneered a visual way of making accounting and financial information easy for anyone to understand. It’s called Color Accounting
The system uses a color-coded diagram (interface) called the Color Accounting Framework that lets people see, point, engage and communicate with clarity about financial matters.
We love the fact that bankers use it in New York, hedge fund owners in London, aboriginal community leaders in Australia, graduate students in Washington DC, and school kids in Cape Town. And business people use it everywhere. In Canada, for example, Color Accounting Trainers are reconciling founders to their children and grandchildren by having them all see how the family businesses really work.
Learners love Color Accounting because it’s a breakthrough, enabled only by the advent of ubiquitous color printing. It makes what were obscure and elusive concepts vivid and really simple to grasp.
The human and financial cost of financial ILLITERACY is enormous and pervasive.
