This course covers a three step process that businesses can follow to uncover opportunities to improve cash flow and profitability. 

In Phase 1, a process is laid out to analyze the seven cash drivers of any business, comparing the company to itself as well as its industry peers.  Phase 1 ends with the business knowing exactly where to focus their scarce resources to drive improved financial performance. 

Phase 2 (covered in depth in a separate, 1-hour presentation) establishes the value of the business to understand how value is created and to have a measuring point for future improvements. 

Phase 3 forecasts the next three years so the business can see how making small improvements can have a profound impact on the future health of the business. The 3 Phase process provides a business with a complete “Business Performance Review” which equips the CFO to provide financial leadership to the business they serve.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore how analytics can be used to identify opportunities to improve financial performance.
  • Explore how to monetize and prioritize each opportunity so scarce resources can be applied to the greatest opportunities.
  • Recognize the importance of forecasting in communicating with the organization the need to make changes.
  • Identify the steps in a Benchmarking program to implement change.
