Predicting Profitable Performance in Challenging Times
April 28, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Profitability. Despite sophisticated business intelligence tools that enable analysis of Big Data, and the renewed popularity of profitability and costing analysis, many companies still can’t get a grip on fundamental planning inefficiencies or rebound from recent economic instability. If you’re among them, it’s time for your finance organization to rethink their approach to data and their role in the business. Bottom line: Who should own profitability and the best practices to build a more profitable future? The experts speak. Gary Cokins, Analytics-Based Performance Management: “There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” (da Vinci). Jon Essig, CPA, Optimal Solutions: “Measure what is measurable, and make measurable what is not so” (Galileo). Rob Jenkins, SAP: “Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future.” (Niels Bohr). Join us for Predicting Profitable Performance in Challenging Times.
