The financial planning, budgeting, and forecasting process is crucial to business success, but extremely difficult to master. In fact, mentioning an “accurate” forecast to someone who has attempted to create one is sure to be met with a skeptical look. While 100% accuracy may be an unobtainable dream, the goal should still be to get as close as possible in order to give decision-makers some idea of what they can expect as they attempt to guide the business. This is easier said than done.

I’m curious to find out how effective organization’s like yours are at creating accurate budgets as well as monitoring essential performance data to inform decisions. To do this, I am conducting the 2016 Financial Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting and Enterprise Performance Management Benchmark Study. I’d like to invite you to participate.

In thanks of your participation, you will be immediately routed to my guide, “Become an Agile Planner with These Four Steps.” I hope that you will find this information valuable and your input will provide much insight as I compose my FP&A and EPM research over the next year.
