Our research paper explores the combination of PA with xP&A and how organisations are using this combination to transform their planning and forecasting processes to create a more analytical and harmonised approach.
The findings from this research provide insights in explaining the Strategy-Execution Gap and, more importantly, how to close the gap using modern FP&A techniques, processes, and technology.
Research for this paper focused on delving deeper into the most mature level – Level 5, Leading State. The purpose was to provide a road map for FP&A Intelligent Transformation that guides departments in how best they can serve their organisations.
This paper, based on our interviews with 25 top FP&A practitioners and thought leaders along with case studies from the largest global network of FP&A people, captures the best practices and new ideas coming out of this fast-growing area.
In this paper, we will explore these different areas to explain what they are, how they have benefited other organisations and the steps an organisation can take in making the transition.
