White Paper Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Apr 25, 2012
In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.

Activity-based budgeting has been discussed for some time, but becomes far more practical with a Time Driven Activity-Based-Budgeting (TDABC) model. Using this approach, a company can now link its strategic plan and sales and production forecast to the specific demands for capacity required for implementation. This chapter introduces the powerful new extension of the TDABC model to perform what-if analysis and activity-based budgeting.

In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

It's inefficient, ages too quickly, and is out of sync with the strategic plan. No wonder so many executives hate toiling over the annual budget. But, says Peter Horvath, don't look to the budget as the sole management system. Horvath and his associate Ralf Sauter describe six ways to fix budgeting, including integrating it with such systems as the Balanced Scorecard, so that it supports strategy execution in today's fast-changing environment.

White Paper Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Oct 19, 2011
Despite a number of compelling reasons to move away from annual plans and budgets, many CFOs are reluctant to make the change. They fail to recognize that there are alternative (and less dysfunctional) ways of driving performance improvement and making managers accountable for performance. CFOs need to implement systems that provide managers at every level with the capability to make fast, well-informed decisions. They need to replace annual planning cycles with more regular business reviews that enable managers to see trends, patterns, and "breaks in the curve" long before the competition.

Surveys show that most CFOs want to upgrade their role from accounting specialists to strategic or business partners. But few CFOs have actually made the change, primarily because they have neither the time nor the necessary capabilities within the current finance team. But for those who do make the change, the rewards are tangible. This chapter lays out a number of important steps that the CFO and the finance team need to take to position themselves as trusted and valued business partners within the organization.
