Business Uncertainty and What Finance Needs to Do NOW: Updated Daily as the Situation Changes

Webcast SERIES Overview COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) has been declared a pandemic, and this is no time for organizations to panic. At a time like this, FP&A’s role is critical. We are unsure what the impact will be on the global economy, specific industries, and individual companies. A recession is likely at this point, but how deep will it be? We can be sure of one thing: our budgets for 2020 are going to be wrong. The numbers we planned for this fiscal year will be incorrect. We must be able to explain those numbers and have alternate forecasts ready-at-hand. The secret to businesses surviving this threat to their future is a combination of scenario planning (so we have different plans depending on how severe this ends up being), narrative reporting (so we can explain all the differences to our original plan), and real-time analytics (so we can monitor the impact immediately).               ArganoInterRel CEO, Edward Roske, will explain the two most important scenarios Finance must prepare now, how to communicate information as it comes in, and methods for using narrative reporting to open a dialogue as we start to report on actual versus our…

[embed]https://youtu.be/v7fqDYIpkKk[/embed] Webcast Overview Will novel coronavirus (COVID-19) end up being a panic or a pandemic? Stocks are already falling, industries are losing billions, international travel is limited, and shoppers in affected areas are leaving shelves barren… but maybe this will turn out to be more hype than people are currently fearing. One thing is sure, though: what we planned for at the start of 2020 will not be happening, at least, not exactly. The numbers we budgeted for this fiscal year will be incorrect, and we must be able to explain those numbers and have alternate forecasts ready-at-hand. The secret to businesses surviving this threat to their future is a combination of scenario planning (so we have different plans depending on how severe this ends up being) and narrative reporting (so we can explain all the differences to our original plan). In this timely presentation, ArganoInterRel CEO, Edward Roske, will explain how to rapidly prepare the two most important scenarios, so your FP&A department and your entire company will be prepared for the coming disruption that COVID-19 will bring. There is no time to waste. We can’t predict the future, but we can plan for it. Register today. Edward Roske…
