The CFO Playbook on Strategy: How Finance Teams Improve Their Focus on FP&A
December 4, 2017 at 2pm est
Among the most crucial skills finance teams bring to their companies is the ability to employ financial planning and analysis (FP&A). Whether they analyze financial data they have already collected to help inform their companies’ strategic decisions, or outline the most likely future scenarios and how best to plan for them, finance teams demonstrate their value by enabling their companies to prepare for the future.
But many finance teams are unable to focus on forward-looking endeavors because they continue to spend most of their time gathering and verifying the accuracy of the data they require for FP&A.
During this Webcast, we will reveal how finance teams can devote greater attention to FP&A by streamlining administrative tasks, including data collection. We will discuss:
- How to determine which activities your finance team performs are the best candidates for automation or outsourcing,
- What aspects of FP&A are essential for finance teams to develop in-house, and
- How to apply the latest methodologies and technological advances to accelerate the time frame in which your finance team contributes value to your company through FP&A.
