Episode Description

The buzz: “Predicting better than pure guesswork, even if not accurately, delivers real value” (Eric Siegel). The lines are blurring between the traditionally silo’ed Financial Planning and Analysis department and the Finance team that performs Financial Consolidation. Why? Technology is enabling a more accurate middle-of-the-month predictive close to replace month-over-month planning and forecasting. How can your company leverage innovations for more granualte forecasting and guidance for the business? The experts speak. David Dixon, TruQua Enterprises: “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be” (Wayne Gretzky). Tony Guetersloh, TruQua Enterprises: “I’ve got to admit it’s getting better, a little better all the time” (The Beatles). Elizabeth Milne, SAP: “Sometimes the light’s all shining on me, other times I can barely see” (The Grateful Dead). Join us for Predictive Close and Predictive Accounting: Getting Granular.
