How to Establish FP&A as Your Company's Center of Analytical Excellence - Argyle Executive Forum Events How to Establish FP&A as Your Company's Center of Analytical Excellence - Argyle Executive Forum Events


The hallmark of a company that is well-prepared for long-term success is expertise in financial planning and analysis (FP&A). Companies have to broaden their understanding of their performance to encompass operational as well as financial metrics while facing shrinking time horizons for making strategic decisions. Finance leaders recognize they need to do more than accelerate FP&A. This translates to expanding the role of FP&A from a department within finance to a center of excellence. This also instills best practices in extended planning and analysis, or xP&A, across a variety of business processes.

During this webinar, we will reveal how finance leaders establish best practices in planning and analysis, and we will discuss:

  • How the role of FP&A is evolving beyond that of a traditional finance function to encompass xP&A.
  • How companies can apply advances in analytics and scenario modeling not only to amplify their understanding of their performance but also identify opportunities to improve it.
  • What types of skills are becoming essential to support the emergence of FP&A as a company’s source of analytical expertise.
  • How to elevate FP&A from a finance function to a center of excellence that informs an entire company’s strategic decisions (xP&A).
