The concept of integrated business planning — closing gaps in an organization’s various planning functions and aligning operations and strategy with its financial performance — has existed in various forms for decades. What has changed is creation of planning platforms that can handle the fluidity of data to erase silos and enterprise borders where once there were multiple geographies, departments, time zones, languages and currencies. All elements of business are managing the avalanche of information coming to them. Just like connecting disparate people, we also must connect data that resides in various systems, applications and tools.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.

Les entreprises modernes doivent évoluer à un rythme sans précédent. Certaines peuvent réagir rapidement, d’autres doivent lutter. D’où la question : pourquoi certaines entreprises réussissent, mais pas d’autres ? La Harvard Business Review a interrogé 385 lecteurs représentant des entreprises de plus de 500 employés à propos des défis rencontrés dans le domaine de la planification, ainsi que des outils qu’ils utilisent. Le verdict est sans appel : 9 sur 10 utilisent des tableurs, et seulement 22 % sont satisfaits du résultat. « La planification basée sur des feuilles de calcul en silos n’est plus adaptée à la rapidité d’évolution, ni à l’envergure du business d’aujourd’hui », conclut la Harvard Business Review. Heureusement, une solution existe ! Dans l’étude approfondie publiée par HBR sous le titre « The New Game Plan for Strategic Planning », vous lirez des entrevues avec des experts de l’industrie, et découvrirez une analyse des conclusions de l’enquête, des illustrations clai
