Financial Closing and Reporting: Keeping Up with Change

April 7, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Your books.

Closing the books and creating financial reports are nothing new. But with the accelerating pace of business, Finance now must deliver faster, more reliable and visible results, all with full regulatory compliance. Is this keeping your CFO awake at night?

The experts speak.

Wendy Reinitz, Performance Analytics: “There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.” (Indira Gandhi).

Gabe Zubizarreta, Silicon Valley Accountants: “According to Peter Drucker, ‘If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it,” but I add that if you can’t see it or measure it, then you can’t manage it!”

Elizabeth Milne, SAP: “A cardinal principle of Total Quality escapes too many managers: you cannot continuously improve interdependent systems and processes until you progressively perfect interdependent, interpersonal relationships.” (Stephen Covey).
