There’s often a tendency in FP&A to focus too much on the budgeting, forecasting and planning process, without taking a good hard look at how the overall organizational strategy, people and technology play into the equation. At AFP 2019, a panel discussion looked at how to improve upon that.

In this episode of AFP Conversations, sponsored by Santander, Sarah Moriarty, Associate Director of Financial Management for Harvard University, and Kirby Lunger, former partner with Performance Architects, discuss what it truly takes for FP&A teams to succeed at forecasting and budgeting, and how can they avoid pitfalls along the way.
