But Scores Are Important
Before we leave this topic, let me offer a word of caution. Don't think that scores are unimportant because they don't represent real dollars. Jobs are lost, promotions are won, raises are given, companies bought and sold on the basis of financial scores. You want to have good scores in business, even if they don't reflect the true cash status. Good scores produce winners in business just as good scores produce winners in sports.
In the rest of this book, you will learn some ways to improve the scores.
