The FP&A Paradox
October 5, 2017
What companies refer to as “FP&A” is much more than just finance. A purely financial focus leads to more focus on short-term goals instead of focusing on longer-term integrated business planning. Business leaders are shifting their focus to businesses planning analysis to better align with their company’s strategic vision. This change essentially is meant to downplay finance’s focus on short-term results and shift toward strategies aimed at positioning a company well for a longer-run future.
