More Effective Financial Planning Fosters Growth and Competitiveness

"Over the past decade, senior executives have increasingly demanded more from financial planning and analysis (FP&A) professionals. Corporate leaders who once might have been satisfied with assessments informed by intuition now demand data-driven guidance for the decisions they make. Simple reports and dashboards that once were sufficient are no longer enough. The more challenging business environment has forced companies and the executives that run them to become more sophisticated in their use of software for planning, budgeting and forecasting. They now regularly create alerts to enable more management by exception and use performance scorecards to assess and improve results."
