|Description||The FP&A Summit for the Pharma and Biotech Industry brings leaders and innovators from the industry together for a summit acclaimed for its insight into the forecasting and planning process.
Finance Execs in 2012 who are looking to develop a systematic approach to link strategic plans, budgets and forecasts can't afford to miss this summit. Hear how to generate granular analyses of profitability drivers, plan around capital needs and produce ROI analyses (e.g. for IT projects).
For many firms, the key is to become an “analytic competitor”— a business that is fast, flexible, and precise. Especially when they must reallocate resources in line with changing patterns of demand, cost and opportunity. For the FP&A team, this requires the ability to access, collect and analyze both financial data and forward-looking non-financial measures such as trends in customer demand or commodity prices.
