Financial Planning & Analysis
Financial planning and analysis (FP&A) teams play a vital role in organizations by assisting decision-makers with connecting business drivers to financial performance. However, a majority of Chief Financial Officers indicate their finance organizations lack competencies needed to serve as a key business partner to leadership, drive and influence an organization to deliver its targets, and minimize risk in strategic decision-making. Typical FP&A gaps include a lack of internal capabilities and analytical tools, inefficient processes, and outdated technology.
Stout has a dedicated team of professionals who help enable Finance functions to establish and drive value-add activities that deliver greater insights to leadership by providing enhanced visibility to the business. This improvement in Finance operations capabilities is delivered through reporting and analysis, budgeting and forecasting, and strategic business support. Our team combines consulting and industry experience while focusing on FP&A at the corporate, division, and functional levels that coexist within an organization.
Stout’s FP&A solutions help identify and remedy gaps while building a sustainable function to link business decisions with key performance indicators (KPIs) that drive an organization’s profitability and liquidity.
