Companion Webinar: FP&A Guide to Integrated Planning
Thursday, September 14, 2017
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Financial planning and analysis plays a unique role in the organization, facilitating the deployment of capital to its highest use among internal and external constituents. The range of stakeholders requires FP&A to view the company as an integrated set of functions that connects the dots among operational decisions, customer impact, and financial competitiveness. To accomplish this successfully, FP&A needs to gather disparate input and transform it into actionable information. This is “integrated planning”—stitching together the best information and insight from across the organization to create a useful, shareable plan that aligns all facets of the organization. In this webinar, the author and editor of the new AFP FP&A Guide to Integrated Planning, underwritten by Anaplan, will outline how integrated planning can become a competitive capability.
- Understand what makes up Integrated Business Planning (IBP) and the connected processes that make IBP work
- Review the roles of people in IBP, including the tasks they do and the skills they need
- Learn about the technology that IBP relies on—next-generation planning software and its enabling technologies such as cloud and data integration
