On the 9th of March, Larysa Melnychuk hosted an inspiring webinar about FP&A Data Visualization: Moving from Insight to Impact where three senior professionals focused on discussing three pillars of FP&A storytelling.
As an FP&A leader in your organization be a gentle guide and rigid challenger. Question decisions made with you or just in your presence. Encourage reliance on financial data, not an exchange of opinions.
When an organisation decides to invest in an FP&A software, there are three things to look for which will help ensure that the software selected will benefit the organisation as a whole, not just the FP&A function.
There are so many great stories to be told in FP&A! Due to technological advances, FP&A professionals now have access to advanced analytics, flexible dashboarding and effective data visualisation tools.
Knowing your numbers is a good starting point for an FP&A professional. But it is also required to know how to present the findings to others.
We are all storytellers in a sense but FP&A stories need particular skills to be great. In an era led by technology, data and automation, where do the stories fit? How will the FP&A stories of the future be told? What are the skills needed to be a great FP&A storyteller?
