  • Highlights

    The day will be broken into 4 sections:

    Accounting Fast and Slow: Thinking About Thinking

    Do we really understand why we, and our companies, make the decisions we do? We may believe that we make decisions only after acquiring all the facts, carefully considering all the alternatives and logically choosing the best option. However, Nobel prize-winner in Economics Daniel Kahneman and his long-time collaborator Amos Tversky have proven in numerous experiments and studies that we make most decisions by intuition and not analysis. We will examine Kahneman and Tversky’s groundbreaking work and its implications on us, our companies and the accounting profession

    Avoid Failure: Succeed Through Experimentation

    Business literature often tells the stories of epic blunders, people who have attempted great achievements, yet failed spectacularly in the attempt. Study after study has shown that great successes rarely occur as the result of a giant leap, but rather from disciplined experimentation that builds on a foundation of learning and discovery. This session will help put you on a path of continuous achievement by teaching you how to experiment and create enduring progress.

    Aligning Budgets to Strategy: The Key to Profitability

    In most organizations, strategic planning and budgeting are separate processes, making them out of alignment from their inception. This webinar explores a practical “real world” planning approach that aligns spending to long-term strategy, creates a culture of accountability and responsibility, and might actually be fun when everyone gets on board. The result will create a model for your organization’s future growth and profitability.

    The Finance Team of Tomorrow

    Best financial management practices have changed considerably in the last twenty years and are likely to continue to change for years to come. New tools continually make us more efficient. If we ignore our professions advances, we will eventually become as obsolete as a ten key calculator. This session will discuss current best practices that you may not have implemented and other techniques that are likely to become best practices of the future.
