Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A)

clockFinancial planning and analysis encompass budgeting, forecasting, documenting and evaluating the current and future financial situations of the company. In a general sense, it could be said that FP&A is about understanding and making the numbers work for you, and from this perspective it can include also non-financial numbers such as sales and operational KPI’s, value chain processes, supply chain, and any other critical process in the enterprise that can (and should) be put down to numbers. Its vision is strategic, while its results can (and should) be used tactically.

Managing a business is about managing the numbers, otherwise it is gambling.
