Description: Overview: Driver-base d planning is fundamentally different from traditional budgeting in that it focuses on identifying business drivers and the relationships that cause specific outcomes. As such, the focus is on the variables that determine operational and financial metrics that move the business forward, not just on budget dollar amounts. Most analysts and planning professionals use Excel spreadsheets and waste lots of time verifying data and double checking formulas and links to guard against errors. In contrast, best-in-class companies use driver-based planning and purpose-built planning software applications to minimize the chance of errors and maximize the time spent analyzing data and developing insights that drive actions to improve the bottom line. Winning companies also incorporate an in depth understanding of operational drivers into their models to increase flexibility and make them easy to update and manage. Why should you Attend: Traditional planning processes are slow and problematic with fully 56%1of businesses taking 3 months or more to complete their budgets. Compounding the problem of lengthy planning cycles, more than 75%2 of financial analysts' time is spent performing tasks that add no value. Driver-based planning takes you beyond traditional budgeting and provides you the tools to develop flexible plans that can quickly and easily generate insights and add value.
