CFO of the future 5 - best practice measurement and reporting

Category: MASTER COURSE

Fifth of the CFO of the future series of five one day workshops. Find out how to provide your business partners with fast, frequent and relevant information, ensuring that your measures and reports provide insights to guide the business. Book the series or chose individual workshops - it could be the defining moment in your career.

Who should attend?
These workshops are aimed at existing and aspiring CFOs (including finance directors/controllers/managers, strategic/business planners and anyone responsible for improving the finance and planning operations) who want to improve their knowledge and performance. They are applicable to both the private and public sector.

What you will gain
Based on many insights into how the best CFOs have improved their finance operations, this series provides the opportunity for you to take a career step-change in knowledge and performance. It will cover a wide range of topics including leadership, efficiency, strategy, profitability, planning and measurement.

Programme outline
Best practice measurement and reporting
It is likely that your measures and reports are too slow, detailed and lack performance insights. Most managers don’t know where they are until two weeks after each month end. You need to raise your game and provide your partners with fast, frequent and relevant information. This workshop will teach you: 

  • how to turn “dumb KPIs” into intelligence using business analytics and corporate performance management
  • how to design ‘reports on a page’ and use trends
  • how to design team-based scorecards and align measures and rewards
  • using comparisons (benchmarking, peer to peer comparison) to drive continuous improvement
  • the law of unintended consequences and avoiding them – conflict of measures and adverse human behaviours
  • how to open up the information system and communicate results more effectively
  • thinking big when goal setting – stretched goals

Case examples are drawn from a wide range of organisations.

Visit The CFO of the future for details of the full series.

The course starts at 9.30am. Lunch and refreshments are included.
6 CPD hours (where applicable).
