The FP&A paradox: It’s more than just finance

Business planning and the road to the future

Adapting to change in today’s dynamic business environment requires a transition from traditional financial planning and analysis (FP&A) to business planning and analysis (BP&A).

In this paper, learn how to execute the transformation to BP&A, including four leading practices for the finance organization. This publication also uncovers potential benefits and real life examples of companies that have transformed to a holistic business planning approach.
