FP&A’s Role in Business Strategy and Decision-Making
Thursday, February 28 and March 7 2019
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
FP&A drives business sustainability and growth. However, in order for a business to grow there must be (1) a clear identification of the firm’s values, (2) an effective governance structure, (3) a consistent process for making decisions, and (4) knowledge of the appropriate key performance indicators (KPIs) central to business success. Participants learn how to help their firms improve in these areas in order to sustain growth, with clear objectives and takeaways. Students practice a decision-making strategy that focuses and streamlines the strategic thinking process.
- Understand the key role that FP&A plays in crafting and implementing business strategy
- Understand how inefficient governance structures and poor decision-making prevent business growth
- Learn an effective model for identifying a firm’s values and implementing an effective decision-making strategy
- Identify the KPIs essential to business growth
