The increasing importance of the FP&A function is a sign of how critical information management skills are to modern businesses. Organisations have invested heavily in their information infrastructure over the last decade and now have a wealth of reliable data. This enables them to measure, plan and run businesses ways that were hitherto impossible. Strong specialist teams of information professionals are required to exploit this potential and they need to be equipped with a higher level and a wider range of knowledge and skills than traditional professional qualifications provide.
The FP&A Guru series of workshops help close the knowledge gap. They provide practitioners with insights from the world recognised FP&A experts into the latest thinking in this area and the guidance on how to put them to use in the workplace.
The inaugural one-day workshop on Mastering Business Forecasting will take place on the 2nd of November 2016 in Central London.
