How to Advance Your Finance Model Using Next Generation Concepts

What’s next for maturing finance organizations? Still wrestling executive demand to add more value, numerous ERPs, differing models that have “evolved” internationally, limited focus on transactions?

Stagnation can be your worst enemy. Attend this workshop to discuss the five guiding principles to move beyond stage 1 of transformation. Topics for discussion include:

  • A more holistic approach to servicing diverse regions and countries
  • Expanding to non-traditional and higher-value services (e.g., FP&A)
  • Infusing innovation into your organization—is predictive analytics or robotic process automation in your future?
  • Regaining focus on business responsiveness and relationships
  • Creating end-to-end process models and structures
