Leading the xP&A revolution – finance’s secret weapon to delivering enterprise value and growth

Finance leads connected and integrated business planning to deliver results

If you have disconnected processes, legacy technologies, and siloed decision-making, you can’t keep pace with the needs of business today and can’t be ready for the future. As a visionary finance leader, you know the role and expectations are changing and you must now rethink how to deliver value and growth, including alignment of financial and operational planning.

In a recent Gartner® report, Future of Finance Extends FP&A to Include Operational Planning“survey respondents overwhelmingly (96%) agreed that their organization would adopt a planning strategy integrating or connecting FP&A to one or more operational planning applications by 2024.” Gartner® calls this extended planning and analysis (xP&A) as it enables cross-functional partnership for improved visibility of strategic targets, shared accountability in analysis and decision-making, and collaboration for execution and outcomes.

Gensler is a large, global architecture firm that faced extreme disruption during the pandemic due to projects being paused or canceled, supplies being scarce or difficult to procure, and people around the world rethinking how public spaces are used. On top of external conditions, Gensler also experienced internal pressure to drive growth. By leveraging insights and drivers across the business, they were able to pivot with agility and overcome unfavorable business conditions to weather the downturn and create a stronger environment for future readiness.
