Companion Webinar: Planning in the Age of Volatility
Thursday, January 25, 2018
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Unforeseen disruptions continue to increase, which creates big challenges for FP&A professionals. Given the myriad of ways that volatility can hit a business, how should FP&A anticipate the potential impact it can have on the planning function—budgeting, forecasting, benchmarking, partnering, and risk management? This webinar will examine the key elements of that process, and highlight how FP&A can manage the volatility that can have a major impact. In general, the approach is to assume that volatility exists, and therefore teams should prepare for it, and react quickly when it occurs.
- Understanding what volatility is and how it affects the business
- Starting a resilient plan that copes with volatility
- Setting an appropriate risk appetite
- Reforecasting and using rolling forecasts
- Effective modeling and reporting
