How Finance Leaders Can Better Align Budgeting and Forecasting Processes

Date: Friday, July 12, 2019
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
For many organizations, budgeting is a point-in-time event to be completed on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. The traditional process is far from collaborative or efficient, and the budget does little to provide the necessary insights to shape decisions or evaluate the performance of key business drivers.

Progressive CFOs recognize that budgeting, when done right, is a powerful tool for informing the future of the organization.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
The benefits of moving beyond current manual and static budgeting processes, including more accurate forecasts that promote growth and improve cash flow management;
How CFOs can champion a more integrated process that evolves the budgeting exercise into a more useful tool for forecasting and planning; and
The role of automation and data in generating more insightful and efficient budgets that can serve as a model for forecasting and planning going forward.
