Challenge: Did you know that…

  • The #1 problem with planning, reporting and analysis processes is they take too long (Source BPM Partners).
  • One of the reasons is often because managers don’t engage with the planning process, so the whole burden falls on finance.

You are spending too much time doing what your managers should be doing themselves. The result is an inefficient use of finance resources, and LOB managers that aren’t equipped to make timely decisions.

Opportunity: What if you could…
