Anticipating the Needs of the CFO

As the steward of company capital, the CFO is responsible for making informed decisions that impact the organization. The role of FP&A is to provide the analytical rationale to support these decisions. With scenario planning, traditional planning processes are augmented with additional data to create potential futures that address vital questions, such as the financial implications resulting from an acquisition, expansion into a new region and the effects of a hiring freeze. This session looks at a case study of how a practitioner defined scenarios, collaborated with the CFO and business partners to understand potential outcomes, and as a result, accelerated the company's response in an ever-changing business environment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how scenario planning exercises can lead to better business outcomes.
  • Learn to develop strategies that fill the gap between goals and forecasts.
