After an absence of almost two years, I was looking forward to joining the London FP&A Board meeting, where a group of senior finance professionals met in person, many experiencing their first face-to-face industry event since the initial lockdown in the UK back in March 2020.
In this series of blogs, I am looking at areas where FP&A departments must improve if they are to support organisation decision-making in this technology-driven age. In this blog, I’ll cover the new staffing roles that are essential.
First and foremost, Best-in-class FP&A is about agility. Accordingly, it specialises in the ability to orient planning activity around the needs and cycles of the products and services provided by the organisation. With a constant flow of urgent demands leaving little time to make changes, finance teams need practical advice on how to digitally transform FP&A.
This article provides an overview of the topics and cases presented and discussed by the expert panellists at the webinar “From Traditional to Better and Beyond Budgeting”, as well as the results of our polling questions.
This article looks at the key concepts and definitions of both integrated and agile FP&A. Through the two case studies, we explore how to connect integrated FP&A from a finance view to deliver continuous and real-time planning through an operational and technology view.
