Are your planning initiatives coming together--including hitting those top line and net income targets? Does your team find itself stuck in a seemingly endless loop of negotiations, as budget inputs are submitted and rejected? How can your Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) team break free? How can your process change from awful to AWESOME?
This session explores how you can convert your FP&A team into a destination department where finance professionals are lining up to join. Why? Because they know that they will learn faster, expand their skill sets, and have great fun. See how to apply collected best practices and case examples to find out how FP&A is becoming to the path to leadership.
Learning Objectives: 1. Identify why most budgeting efforts quickly devolve into a game of sandbagging and minimizing expectations, and learn what you can do to reverse this trend.
2. Examine how new process approaches and innovative technology are combining to create a faster, more agile planning function.
3. Explore how your team members can become better business partners fully supporting operations and front-line decision making.
4. Case examples will show how creative leaders have put fun back into running the FP&A function, creating a “destination department” where engaged and innovative people line up to join and speed up their career development.
