Finance executives know all too well the importance of having good timing. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of hard evidence out there about so-called “perfect” timing itself. We make a lot of “when” decisions in our professional lives based largely around guesswork. But there is a better way.

In this episode of AFP Conversations, Jim Kaitz, President and CEO of AFP, discusses good timing with New York Times Bestselling Author Daniel Pink. Pink's books on work, business and behavior have won multiple awards and have sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. His latest book, “When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing,” reveals how timing is truly a science that can help us make smarter decisions, enhance productivity, and boost the performance of our organizations.

Pink will be discussing his research in a keynote presentation at FinNext 2020. FinNext, which takes place in New Orleans from March 15-17, is where FP&A professionals meet to create what’s next. Register here.
