SAP Radio Guest Speaker Overview

Steve Player NA program director, BBRT

Steve Player serves as the North America Program Director for the Beyond Budgeting Round Table (BBRT). He works with BBRT member companies to implement continuous planning processes. This community of practice enables companies to eliminate time-wasting budget processes and replace them with rolling forecasts, relative targets, and incentive programs that pay for actual performance rather than negotiated results. He has over 30 years of experience with improving performance management and implementing strategic planning processes.

His recent blogs focus on how emerging technologies like Big Data, mobility, and cloud computing can enable finance organizations to transform.

Steve is also the Managing Director of Beyond EPS Advisors, a business consulting firm, and founder of ABM SMART.

He is the co-author of the books, Future Ready: How to Master Business Forecasting and Beyond Performance Management, as well as five other books.

Steve writes the Finance Transformation column for Business Finance Magazine featuring CFO interviews from leading organizations on innovative finance and planning processes.
