Topic

PANEL DISCUSSION: How to Create and Sustain an FP&A Team for the Future *CPE Eligible*

Does your company define financial planning and analysis (FP&A) only as a department within finance? If so, then your company is not generating as much value as it can from FP&A. Companies typically circumscribe FP&A within the finance function, which traditionally has focused on financial metrics in isolation. If FP&A teams confine their analysis to individual spreadsheets that are inaccessible beyond the computers on which they reside, then companies lack visibility not only into financial performance but also what they need to achieve from an operational perspective to fulfill their goals. By attending this session, you will learn:

  • How companies have traditionally understood the function of FP&A.
  • What finance leaders will expect from FP&A teams in terms of resources, skills, training, and collaboration with other areas of their companies.
  • How finance leaders can partner with other executives, including those in human resources, IT, and procurement, to ensure they hire and develop FP&A teams with the capabilities their companies will require for the future.
