Scenario Planning and Analysis is a vital tool in the Corporate Finance toolkit. The pace of change and the level of uncertainty have obsoleted single-point projections. Beyond framing potential outcomes, scenario analysis enables the organization to be prepared for potential events or outcomes that require a course correction. This session presents the basics and best practices in applying scenario analysis, including the objectives of scenario analysis, identifying alternative scenarios, evaluating and presenting scenarios, monitoring critical assumptions and identifying triggers requiring action.Speaker(s):
Face it. Digital Transformation is not easy. With proper strategy and leadership, ERP projects can, and do, succeed. ERP is just one of many Digital Transformation initiatives that businesses undertake. Unfortunately, these 3 letters bring concern and risk due to the frequent failures in these projects – as well as the trail of dysfunction left behind from poorly executed projects. Our session leader, Bob Green, leads a team of objective, product-agnostic Digital Transformation professionals at SingerLewak's Business Informatics practice. They work in this space to help ensure proper project strategy and execution from all players involved – as well as to remediate implementations that have gone awry. In this session, Bob will share interactively actual recommendations and practices that you, as the financial leader, can deploy and govern in your organization to make Digital Transformation (ERP, and otherwise) a successful experience.Speaker(s):
Running an internet startup and pioneering new methodologies for an entrenched industry is hard work. PowerPivotPro's operational complexities mirror those of much-larger firms: a historical hodge-podge of on-premises, cloud, and home-grown systems, each managing a crucial component of the overall business.
In such a siloed environment, even fundamental questions like “what will cash flow look like in three months,” “when should we hire more staff,” and “are we on pace to hit the budget” can be a nightmare. Sound familiar?
But now imagine having crystal-clear vision across ALL of that, from the “10,000 foot view” all the way down to individual transactions (when needed). Furthermore, imagine a laser-precise forecast which automatically refines itself every single day. And last but not least, imagine having all of this without a seven-figure spend, and without waiting a year or more?
In this session, see how our leadership team “practiced what we preach” on our own business to make this a reality – as a side project. We'll even demonstrate our fully-functional suite of dashboards (with obfuscated financials), so bring your cell phone cameras! Along the way we hope to inspire you to mirror our results for your own business.Speaker(s):
