From the most senior to the no

The CFO has to be on top of information flow at all times.” (Mark Partin, CFO of BlackLine) The recent FP&A Trends 2021 Survey highlights that many FP&A practitioners struggle to create time to work on value added activities. From the most senior to the novice FP&A practitioners, there is still (too) much time spent on non-value-added tasks such as gathering data, excess time providing meaningful insights and having trust in the data. How does FP&A overcome these challenges? Tune in to hear FP&A experts' insights on how easily the available, yet disruptive technologies – such as AI/ML, Integration tools and an xP&A (extended planning and analysis) process – can help bring the FP&A practice to the top of the ladder when it comes to driving organizational-wide decisions. We’ll ask Jeff Hattendorf at Macrospect, Hans Gobin at Plan2Plan Consulting, and Floyd Conrad for their take on Data: The Road to Value Add for FP&A.
