Is siloed planning a challenge in your organisation?

Aligning Finance and Operations planning is a common goal that many organisations find difficult to achieve. In practice, it is common for Finance and Operations teams to operate in silos, framing business problems and opportunities using different terminology and using different technology to support their plans. 

An integrated performance framework is key to connected planning. 
Although the gap between Finance and Operations may seem unbridgeable at times, when it is understood and well addressed, the benefits offer a substantial dividend.

Join our breakfast seminar where we will address:

  • What integrated (connected) business planning is about and its impact on the business when implemented effectively.
  • Practical tips on how to achieve alignment between finance and operations.
  • Customer stories to illustrate the benefits of integrated planning.
  • How the right technology can support teams to achieve a more integrated planning approach.
