This week the Malaya team is pleased to present the third blog post from the series on business insights, which is called “Punching the Numbers”.
Business insights is one of the most important topics to cover in any business, but it’s a topic that’s often overlooked. Whether it’s a company’s financial condition, profitability, or strategy, the numbers can speak volumes about your company. We asked the Malaya team to share their experiences of how to punch the numbers in a business.
In the spirit of the series, the Malaya team gave us a freebie to prove that you don’t need to be a programmer or data-analyst to learn how to punch numbers into your company’s financial statement.
I like this one because it’s just a list of numbers that speak for themselves, not a long list of words you need to read. So go ahead and try it for yourself. You can read the full list here, but it’s a bit long and it’s best if you just read through it.
The Malaya team uses a variety of “numbers” in their financial statement. In addition to the actual numbers, the Malaya team also uses the “numbers as speech” tactic to make the numbers seem more like actual words. For example, in the financial statement, the company uses “$1.2 billion” as a “buzzword” to represent their revenue.
Speaking of buzzwords, the Malaya team uses a number that is often used as a verb, but isn’t actually a noun, to represent this number is used as a way to make the number seem more like a sentence. So if you see a number that looks like a noun, it’s usually because Malaya used the number as a way to make it seem like a noun.
Its like a language of numbers. When we speak about numbers, we are using language that was developed over thousands of years. It’s similar to how languages develop over thousands of years.
You can see that Malaya is using its number to make the number seem like a noun. But we don’t even need to use this number to form a sentence. We can use it as a verb.
And I might add that Malaya’s number is also a verb, because the language that was used to make the number seem like a noun is still the same. Malaya’s number is not just a number, it’s also a verb.
Malaya is a language that’s been around for thousands of years. And because it’s been around for that long, Malaya has developed its own number system. The Malayan language has been around for thousands of years, so Malaya has a specific number system. And when we use a number system, its because we have to. Not because we have to use it. But because we have to.
