The new role of controlling with Extended Planning & Analytics (xP&A)

Change of perspective: Planning is often seen as a chore that keeps controlling and business departments busy for several weeks. New approaches such as Extended Planning & Analytics (xP&A) enable controllers to gain a new understanding of their role as business partners. In this joint webinar, Sebastian Jakob and Prof. Andreas Seufert discuss the pitfalls and solution approaches on the way to efficient, integrated planning that meets modern demands.

In focus:

  • How xP&A puts the right focus on cause and effect in planning.
  • Why the income statement remains the mother of all planning.
  • Yin & Yang: Why critical questioning of new methods is important.
  • Why resilient supply chain planning and modern data architectures are the backbone of a successful xP&A implementation.
