The Holy Grail of Performance Management - The Intersection of Financial, Operational and Strategic Initiatives


Performance management has continued to evolve in isolated silos in organizations, placing an independent focus on improving budgeting and planning, financial consolidations and key performance indicator reporting.

However, firms that realize better gains are the ones leveraging emerging performance management tactics which cut enterprise-wide across financial, operational and strategic activities. This session will discuss both the history and the latest evolving technologies that are enabling organizations to drive performance improvements company-wide by touching on each of these areas. It will also discuss how different products support different aspects of performance management, highlighting the choice of budgeting, planning, and forecasting tools vs. reporting, dashboards, and metrics management.

Participants will leave this session with a vision for organizational performance improvement and suggested guidelines for next steps to advance their initiative.
