About the Content

Disruption is nothing new, but the pace at which finance leaders must reevaluate and change course is increasing dramatically, and altering budgeting and forecasting processes forever. Traditional approaches relying on interpretation and extrapolation of past performance are not appropriate for an environment rife with disruption, complexity, and uncertainty. 

Organizations must now build an infrastructure for future-ready performance. Accomplishing this requires brief looks at history, current state insight, and frequent and continuous evaluations of future possibilities. Planning must be situational and continuous, rather than only calendar-driven. Given the line of sight and business partnership with leaders across the business, finance sits at the epicenter of this dramatic shift.

We'll Discuss

In this session, we will discuss these topics and how it is driving finance leaders to focus on:

  • Applying predictive and intelligent forecasting methodologies for insight and alerts when there are anomalies, trends, and deviations 
  • Leveraging internal and external data for improvement in forecasting accuracy
  • Shortening forecasting time horizons and performing more frequent updates
  • Exploring and optimizing divergent scenarios for informed decision-making
  • Developing systems of dynamic planning
  • Providing systems of insight and anticipating possible situations and potential outcomes
