The vital role of finance in a mature integrated business planning

by Bob Hirschey and Rob Tearnan

A mature Integrated Business Planning (IBP) process stimulates the Finance organization to evolve as well. This new white paper, authored by Robert Hirschey and Rob Tearnan, describes the “new” Finance organization in a mature IBP process.

“The Finance organization increasingly is valued for its analysis and insights on the optimal way to deploy strategy,” the authors state.

The white paper describes how the Finance organization performs scenario planning and analysis. Scenarios lead to insights on how to deal with the uncertainty of forward-looking plans. As a result, the management team is better able to compare scenarios to the base plan – and develop contingency plans as needed.
