Manufacturing Financial Planning and Analysis Optimization: Moving Past Results Toward Opportunities

Aug 21, 2018

If your manufacturing organization is focusing on future growth and really examining its financial position, it is more important now than ever for leaders to focus on planning strategies that connect the financial operations of the business with the profit centers of the enterprise.

Are we planning the right way? Are we gaining the key inputs, and are we measuring the right results? Where should we automate? Are we empowering our executives and line managers with the right information at the right time? Are our monthly close cycles taking way too much time?
