Event Details

We talked about turning forecasting on its head – and for sure, many people will resist this change and create barriers for your success. All great ideas for new processes, new tools, new ways to collaborate will fail, if your people are not supporting it. How are you going to engage them? What is the best approach for a smooth adoption? Change is people business and involving the different teams in your improvement initiative, will lead to better ideas and a shared imagination of better forecasting.

What does that mean – a new finance team?
The finance team wants to be the sparring partner for the business and support the success of the organisation. What does that actually mean for the team, for each individual? This requires a quality conversation within the team and the customers of the finance team.

What leadership style is most successful to facilitate change?
The transformation journey requires a lot of openness, creativity and experimentation. As a leader your responsibility is to create an environment that facilitates change. Old leadership styles might be blocking and disengaging people and therefore the success of your transformation.
