Encore 2020 Hindsight to 2021 Foresight: Finance Implications
December 29, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The Buzz: “CFOs are focused on the battle to survive and maintain cash flow during the COVID-19 crisis. But…finance leaders are learning valuable new ways to manage risk in the future.” (fm-magazine.com) In the past when we predicted the future, “2020” was far enough out that possibilities seemed endless, near-term enough that predictions could be extrapolated from historical trends. But no one saw “this 2020” coming, and now we almost have 2020 hindsight. We’ve experienced change that could not be planned for, with financial markets reacting daily to lockdowns, shelter-in-place rules, business restrictions. What were the financial implications of this turbulent year? How will CFOs respond to external forces and plan for continued disruption? What new business models can help them innovate? We’ll ask Birgit Starmanns and Kevin McCollom at SAP and Rizal Ahmed at SAPInsider for their insights on 2020 Hindsight to 2021 Foresight: Finance Implications for Turbulent Times.
