xP&A Advisory Services

Deciding to improve your internal planning, forecasting and analysis processes is easy. Better insights, increased forecast accuracy, cross-functional consensus and planning agility are desirable outcomes for every business. Extended Planning & Analysis (xP&A) represents an ideal future state in which planning is integrated, comprehensive and continuous.

Achieving your xP&A goals depends on a range of factors including business process factors, “people” factors and technology factors.

Success depends on how well your organization is situated with respect to each of these.

The biggest mistake companies make when embarking on an initiative to improve their internal planning processes is to view them only through a technology and software lens. While making the right technology choices is important, technology cannot compensate for shortfalls in business process design, data deficiencies, or a corporate culture that is unprepared for change.

QueBIT Advisory Services reduces risk, and speeds-up time to value by delivering everything needed to make a compelling business case for your planning initiative. We understand that embracing xP&A in your planning processes is not itself the goal, but it is a necessary step towards being able to run your business strategically in our fast-paced ever-changing reality.

QueBIT Advisory Services takes a proven structured approach, including:

  • An objective current-state assessment
  • An evaluation of alternate future-state options, and levels of effort relative to your organization’s readiness
  • An actionable roadmap to the future state that links your financial and operational plans back to strategy
