For decades, managers have been begging finance organizations for impactful analysis to assist them in managing the business, developing meaningful projections, evaluating business decisions, and identifying and addressing threats and opportunities. Unfortunately, most organizations are still waiting.
In this April 2017 webinar, Jack Alexander, a former CFO turned consultant and author, addressed some of the root causes that prevent financial planning and analysis (FP&A) from delivering more value to business partners. In addition, we explored five practical recommendations to significantly improve FP&A:
- Assessing the Performance of your FP&A Efforts
- Building FP&A Capability: People and Organization
- Developing a Portfolio of Effective Analytical Models
- Projecting Performance in Uncertain Times
- Presenting and Communicating Business Information
