How to Hit a Home Run: Strategic Game Plan
May 7, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Strategic planning. Truth time: Is your company doing the right stuff or the dumb stuff when it comes to annual budgeting, planning and control? For example, do you measure activity or outcomes? What about a clear vision of what ‘success’ looks like, so you can gauge performance? Are stale finance practices a roadblock to your becoming a lean, agile, adaptive organization? So much to consider. Take a break and hear what the experts say. Colin Cooper, ISSEL: “What is the point of knowing how well you are performing if you don’t do anything about it? Creating reports doesn’t improve performance, strategic initiatives do. And if the two are not directly linked you are stacking the deck against yourself.” Steve Player, Beyond Budgeting Round Table (BBRT): “Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the face.” (Mike Tyson) Tim Teinzer, SAP: “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” (Peter Drucker) Join us for How to Hit a Home Run: Strategic Game Plan
