Is planning a routine annual exercise or a flexible and dynamic FP&A process that drives value and supports decision-making under uncertainty? How to achieve the latter?
Many organisations these days have three separate plans: a strategic plan created by executives, a finance plan created by the FP&A team and a range of detailed operational plans created by individual departments. These plans have different owners, different terminology and, more importantly, different underlying assumptions. How to overcome this by working in silos and bringing these plans together?
FP&A teams all over the world are undergoing a major transformation via the Integrated FP&A model. Data is the fundamental building block for this transformation.
In times of uncertainty, the failings of systems and measures are brought sharply into focus. Managing profitability often requires a complete re-think of how an organisation plans and the supporting systems that can help sustain profits in both the short and long term. That’s the subject of this paper.
xP&A is more than an attempt to ‘fix’ the planning process. It is a complete transformation of the FP&A function to continually challenge the status quo, to educate, shape and influence management decisions on how the organization achieves its goals.
