The masterclass series Mastering Performance Management signposts the way for businesses to work through the modernisation processes needed to keep up with change. The five evening sessions will be complemented by guest speakers from the industry and plenary discussions.
Changing finance functions
The programme brings together the newest insights from the academic and the practical side of finance, performance management, planning, and forecasting. It was developed by RSM Executive Education, in collaboration with Finext. It is aimed at professionals with at least 10 years of management experience who seek to add business value by making changes to finance functions and by managing performance. It can benefit business controllers, group controllers, managers with responsibilities for business analytics, and finance managers.
“The rapidly changing environment that companies operate in also affects their finance and other business functions. It is therefore imperative to stay up-to-date with the newest developments on the modernisation of these functions,” says Patrick Tullemans from Finext Performance Management.
AI and big data
Participants will learn how to identify where effective changes can be made and what works best in practice, organise finance teams to cope with developments in AI applications and cloud computing, apply budgeting planning and forecasting while addressing pitfalls and dysfunctions, work with big data applications to bring value to the business, set targets and measure performance while preventing dysfunctional effects, and understand how integrated reporting can drive value creation, and how to use it.
The first run of Mastering Performance Management will start in September 2019. The evening sessions will take place on 5 September, 3 and 31 October, 28 November 2019, and 9 January 2020.
