La Harvard Business Review a interrogé 385 lecteurs représentant des entreprises de plus de 500 employés à propos des défis rencontrés dans le domaine de la planification, ainsi que des outils qu’ils utilisent.

Do your plans and forecasts need a reality check? The quality of your strategic decisions is only as good as the quality of your forecasts. And forecasts are only good if they reflect current reality—not the reality of two, three or more quarters ago. Enter “continuous planning.” With a methodology for forecasting at frequent intervals throughout the year, continuous planning “enables managers to see trends, patterns, and ‘breaks in the curve’ long before their competitors, and thus make better informed decisions regarding products and markets.” In this free online webinar, speakers Jim Collins & Guy Jones will explain how continuous planning keeps you in touch with current reality - and one step ahead of competitors.

These organizations realize that real-time strategic planning and performance management are not just “nice to have” but “must have” capabilities. Yet many organizations still struggle to implement these capabilities. As a result, they’re unable to quickly revise their strategies, implement plans, and monitor results.

Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.
