This chapter introduces the powerful new extension of the TDABC model to perform what-if analysis and activity-based budgeting.

In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.

Kein Finanzexperte würde den Nutzen von Planung, Budgetierung und Forecasting infrage stellen. Zusammen bilden diese Prozesse eine Roadmap für das Unternehmen, die den Mitarbeitern klare Hinweise gibt, wie sie die Unternehmensziele erreichen können. Außerdem definiert sie Finanz- und Leistungsziele als wichtige Meilensteine auf dem Weg dorthin. Problematisch sind jedoch die Instrumente und Konzepte, die viele Unternehmen dafür einsetzen – und die Ergebnisse, die sie mit ihnen erzielen. Planungs-, Budgetierungs- und Prognoseprozesse sind oft so gestaltet, dass Finanzteams sich mit banalen Verwaltungsarbeiten beschäftigen müssen und ihnen wenig Zeit für Analysen, Strategieentwicklung und Zielsetzung bleibt. Es muss einen besseren Weg geben, eine Roadmap für ein wachstumsstarkes Unternehmen zu erstellen.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.
