Many finance functions and performance management processes are being modernised to anticipate and adapt to change. So how are leading organisations managing changes in performance management? And how can recent academic research and best practices help businesses adapt to successfully deal with change?

Performance management experts and thought leaders from Finext will discuss real-life challenges. They will present best practices in finance modernisation or planning and forecasting. Practitioners will present a case study on challenges and improvement initiatives within their organisation. Each session will conclude with a panel discussion, a Q&A session among the participants, RSM academics, Finext and other business presenters.

  • Modernising the finance function
