Episode Description

The Buzz: “The original inspiration behind the title 'Ripped from the Headlines' was the Warner Brothers film studio’s stock tagline, 'Torn from today's headlines!', used often beginning in the 1930s to promote the gritty realism of their 'social problem' films. The Evil Twin of this trope is “Could This Happen to You?” [] What’s the latest news on the street that impacts FP&A? Or perhaps the better question is, “What’s the latest news in your home office, study, spare bedroom or kitchen table?”, depending on the distance of your home-working commute! It's time to take a look at topical content from current news headlines to learn how today’s hot topics will affect FP&A professionals today, tomorrow and farther into the future. We may be locked in, but that’s no reason to be out of touch. We’ll ask Jeff Hattendorf at Macrospect, Thiagu Bala at Deloitte and David Williams at SAP for their perspectives on Ripped from the Headlines: Financial Planning and Analysis.
