Create a lean accounting function with improved processes and eye catching reporting. Implement lean methods and become a future ready finance team. Finance team’s processes are often reflection of the past. Many activities are performed because they were done last week, last month, last quarter. Cutting edge methods have been implemented around the world by your peers. They report their month end within three working days, complete annual plans in two weeks, have the auditors out of their hair in the third week of the first month. They are only spending around 30% of their time on the past. They are future ready. Come to this course, and I will help you on your journey to becoming a truly great finance team.

Why do we spend months on an annual planning process that we know is flawed? Why is it we spend days preparing a monthly report that is out of date by the time it is read? Why do we produce huge finance reports for the senior management team that few actually read? Why budget at account code level? Challenge the processes that are carried out, year-in, year-out and instead embrace Drucker’s theory of abondoment.In this masterclass, David Parmenter will show you how abandonment is the key to innovation, giving each delegate a sound understanding of the critical success factors for a “winning corporate finance team”.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in many organizations are a random collection prepared with little expertise, signifying nothing. In this one day masterclass, David Parmenter argues that there are normally fewer than 10 true KPIs in an organisation and these should be measured and reported on daily, or at least weekly. In fact many measures have such a substantial dark-side that some KPIs should be disbanded. KPIs should be measures that support an alignment of effort within the organization, in the intended direction. David considers this alignment the El Dorado of management.As well as looking at the latest thinking on KPIs, the course will address the common issues of how you measure subjective areas, how KPIs can assist in a change process, where KPIs link to strategy, what measures should be used in the sales and operational areas, how to ascertain measures and why SMART measures do not necessarily work.
