Analytics-Based Enterprise Performance Management

by Gary Cokins from Encoursa


Course Description

As the pace of business increases, organizations are relying more heavily on finance and accounting leaders to drive enterprise performance.  To succeed in this environment, a future-focused CPA will leverage the use of business analytics to expand their scope of influence beyond controllership.   This mindset will involve thinking beyond financial outcomes and considering cross-functional key performance indicators (KPIs) related to customer loyalty, process improvement, employee learning & growth, and innovation.  In this live webinar, Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) expert Gary Cokins will illustrate how strategy maps, balanced scorecards, and KPIs can be designed and implemented to communicate strategic objectives across an enterprise along with how to measure customer profitability, and perform driver-based budgeting and rolling financial forecasts.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand how to view enterprise performance management (EPM) as the seamless integration of managerial methods rather than as a process.
  • Define how business analytics is an advance over business intelligence and where Big Data fits in.
  • Identify and differentiate strategic KPIs in a balanced scorecard and operational performance indicators (PIs) in dashboards.
  • Calculate product, service-line, channel, and customer profitability for analysis, insights and actions.
  • Navigate implementation barriers such as behavioral resistance to change.
Who Should Attend

Finance and accounting professionals who desire to improve organizational and firm performance.
