Episode Description

If you believe strategy and planning are the same, think again. And if your CFO and CIO are not on good speaking terms, your organization’s efforts at achieving truly integrated business planning may become a daunting challenge. Why? Planning is evolving to be more about people and process than about technology. The experts speak. Jeff Hattendorf, Macrospect: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” (Benjamin Disraeli) Nat D’Ercole, Deloitte: “The only limits are, as always, those of vision.” (James Broughton) David Dixon, TruQua Enterprises, author/ speaker: “You got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.” (Yogi Berra) Floyd Conrad, SAP: “Management is all about managing in the short term, while developing the plans for the long term.” (Jack Welch) Join us for more insights on Business Planning: How Far Have You Evolved?
