The buzz: Planning.

How healthy is your planning and budgeting process?

Reality check: If you’re still (perhaps stubbornly) following an heirloom Excel spreadsheet recipe using gut-feeling and short-term MBOs as the main ingredients, your CFO is surely hungering for more substance.

Today, with end-user-focused tech tools available mainstream, you have no excuse to NOT include modern technologies in your planning and budgeting.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to start basing your planning decision making on realistic future insights, instead of good-old wishful thinking.

The experts speak.

Steve Player, Beyond Budgeting: “If you want to change the world, find someone to help you paddle the boat.” (Navy Admiral William H. McRaven)

Paul Davis, NTT Data America: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” (Theodore Roosevelt)

Pras Chatterjee, SAP: “Everything you can imagine is real.” (Pablo Picasso)
