Integrating Treasury and FP&A

In today’s complex, volatile, and highly uncertain world, it’s increasingly challenging for Treasury and FP&A functions to partner together to generate near-term and longer-term Balance Sheet and Cash Forecasts. To support broader strategic objectives including investments in innovation, launching new products, M&A activity, and working capital optimization, Finance practitioners need more advanced, frequent, and accurate balance sheet modeling, planning, and cash forecasting capabilities including tight collaboration and integration between Treasury and FP&A. Learn how top performing organizations significantly improve their Balance Sheet planning and Cash Flow forecasting capabilities through deploying a best practice based Treasury and FP&A operating framework including purpose built analytic models, a deep understanding of the end-to-end value business chain, executing an “operational playbook”, and leveraging this foundation for continuous improvement and enhanced business performance.
