Eric Merrill, Deloitte: “All great changes are preceded by chaos” (Deepak Chopra). Mark Richards, RBA Consulting: “Financials are like the punchline to a joke and the set-up is in the operations.” Dan Fagan, SAP: Vince Lombardi said, “If you’re not keeping score you’re just practicing.” Cate Costa gave us the modern-day version, “There are no participation trophies in business.” Join us for Modernizing Your Finance Organization: Metrics and Benchmarking.
