Business Analytics, Forecasting, Financial Planning: The Recipe for Impacting Performance

Date: Tuesday, February 14, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Despite the explosion of new technologies, many organizations are still far from where they want and need to be in terms of driving performance. Companies still often make strategic and operational decisions based on incomplete or untimely data, inadequate analysis, and even pure intuition. There is much talk about how to leverage analytics and dynamic forecasting and planning to impact company performance, but how is it actually done?

    Join us to discover:
  • How companies are aligning process and technology to combine historical and real-time data into what-if scenarios and risk-adjusted forecasts
  • How these scenarios and forecasts improve both financial and operational performance
  • How putting intuitive statistical analysis into the hands of every company manager and stakeholder sharpens decision-making across the enterprise
Larry Maisel, President of DecisionVu Group, will illustrate how your company can:
  • Identify key business drivers and risks
  • Measure and monitor metrics that matter
  • Democratize analytics beyond the ivory tower of finance to include operational stakeholders across the enterprise
  • Run intuitive what-if scenario analysis using contextual analysis with recognized planning and forecasting processes to impact performance
After attending this event you will be able to:
Understand the concepts and inter-relationships of business analytics, dynamic planning and forecasting, and employee performance management
Discover how to transition from a static to dynamic planning and forecasting environment that links strategy to operations
Identify opportunities to develop and leverage analytics that deliver timely, relevant and accurate information to those who impact financial and operational planning
