Episode Description

The buzz: Planning. How healthy is your planning and budgeting process? If you’re using an heirloom Excel spreadsheet recipe with gut-feeling and short-term MBO ingredients, your CFO is surely hungering for more substance. Today, with mainstream, end-user focused tech tools, you have no excuse to NOT include modern technologies in planning and budgeting. Ready to base decisions on realistic insights instead of wishful thinking? The experts speak. Steve Player, Beyond Budgeting: “If you want to change the world, find someone to help you paddle the boat” (Navy Admiral W. H. McRaven). Paul Davis, NTT Data: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena” (Theodore Roosevelt). Pras Chatterjee, SAP: “Everything you can imagine is real” (Picasso). Tune in for answers to the pressing question, Predictive Planning: Fiction or Reality?
