Best Practices for Enterprise Financial Management

Date: Thursday, October 1, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Management accounting practices have become increasingly progressive since the 1980s. What are the best practices? They include channel and customer profitability reporting, integration with enterprise performance management methods (e.g., strategy maps, balanced scorecard), driver-based rolling financial forecasts, fast accounting period closing of the books, chargebacks from shared services like IT, and applying analytics.

Join this webinar to learn about channel and customer profitability reporting and analysis, and the integration of managerial accounting with other enterprise and corporate performance management methods. We will also cover the shift from historical reporting to predictive accounting, and reducing the time period of the monthly accounting closing of the books.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Identify how best practices have expanded accountants from “bean counters” to “bean growers.”
Recognize how to calculate profit and loss statements for customers displaying profit margin layers.
Identify and differentiate strategic KPIs in a balanced scorecard and operational performance indicators (PIs) in dashboards.
Recognize how to perform “predictive accounting” for driver-based budgets / rolling financial forecasts, what-if analysis, and outsourcing decisions
