London FP&A Board meeting on the 15th March 2018

It is commonly agreed that the traditional budgeting process is time-consuming and costly, rarely focuses on strategy and adds little value. However, it is still so deeply embedded in the organisational planning processes that going “Beyond Budgeting” is not an option at this point in time. Can Zero-Based Budgeting be the first step towards flexible budgeting and planning process?

The London FP&A Board was created on the 19th September 2013 to guide the development and promotion of the best practices in modern Financial Planning and Analytics (FP&A). Since then, the boards were successfully established in 15 cities of 11 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and the USA to identify and support new global trends, skill sets and thought leadership in corporate financial planning and analysis.

The FP&A Board meetings are vendor-agnostic, complimentary and by invitation only.
