Your financial planning and analytics workflows involve various tools and software that all have their own steep learning curves

When a planning system involves too many moving pieces it can start to become unwieldy and challenging for users to use effectively.  There is always going to be a learning curve of course, but you want the interface to be as intuitive and cohesive as possible.  When it is disjointed and complicated, you rapidly decrease its usefulness because users will shy away from making the most of what is possible.

How an overwhelming user interface stymies progress

It doesn’t matter how advanced your financial and operational planning technology is if the front-end that your users rely on is difficult to navigate and use.  A poorly designed interface will drastically reduce the amount of value you can get from your operations because it turns users off from engaging with the software and makes it challenging to complete tasks in a reasonable time frame.

So while it may seem purely cosmetic to some, the truth is that a user-friendly interface is a key factor in achieving planning and analytics excellence.  It’s the secret weapon that unlocks the power of the planning methodologies that underlie your system.

Why you should do a forecast post-mortem

Accurate forecasting is a severely underrated skill in modern business and one that you should be looking to improve if you want to maximize the value of your planning and analytics. But the only way to do this is to have a feedback loop where you can look back on the forecast methodologies that you used in the past and assess how they fared when coming up against the uncertainties of the real world.
