2020 has been the most difficult year in modern history. In this year of global uncertainty and on-the-fly critical decision making, FP&A professionals have had an unrivalled opportunity to institute change.
In this research, we focused our attention on the changing role of FP&A into a strategic partner and how technology can support this evolution this year, fortunately, a great and relevant choice. The survey continues to grow, now in its 3rd year, drawing insights from 338 participants (944 since 2017) people who are engaged in the finance function across a diverse set of industries around the globe.
As Einstein said, “In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.” This survey we believe offers hope, insight, and a much-needed reality check on where FP&A is today. It also forecasts what needs to happen for FP&A teams to develop their best practices from theory into reality.
