HOW CFOs FORECAST AND PLAN FOR THE FUTURE

DATE: MARCH 14, 2019
TIME: 12:00 PM EDT
DURATION: 1 HOUR
Brought to you with support from Centage

Webcast Summary

Most CFOs would agree that forecasts and plans have become increasingly valuable as companies seek greater certainty about their future. But CFOs differ about which attributes, such as the level of detail or time horizon, contribute the most to the accuracy of a forecast and the efficacy of a plan. Finance leaders also diverge about what types of circumstances, such as new regulations or geopolitical events, warrant updates to forecasts and plans.

In addition to identifying optimal approaches to preparing a company for the future, a CFO also has to achieve consensus among colleagues about which types of data ought to inform an organization's forecasts and plans, and how these, in turn, should inform an organization's decisions.

 During this Webcast, we will consider:

  • Why forecasting and planning are persistent challenges for finance leaders,
  • What fundamental characteristics underlie effective approaches to forecasting and planning,
  • How to align planning and other forward-looking endeavors with forecasting, and
  • How finance leaders can develop forecasts and plans to inform their companies' strategic decisions
