Scenario Planning

Test scenarios and business assumptions and see the immediate financial impacts of all courses of action

Be ready for anything with Scenario Planning

For organisations to ensure business continuity, they must have a comprehensive understanding of potential business outcomes and be able to rapidly analyse how changing business drivers will impact their financial results. In today's competitive business world, businesses are expected to conduct in-depth analyses of developing scenarios and course-correct within hours or days, not weeks.

Key aspects of in-depth scenario planning include:

  • Slicing and dicing data to optimise results in current periods and drive future strategies and plans.
  • Aggregating margin-based targets and high-level, top-down growth to enable reconciliation of gaps and simple identification of opportunities.
  • Shortening forecast cycles through automating actuals imports, enabling faster what-if analysis.
  • Planning concurrently with multiple scenarios and easily evaluate the impact of your key business drivers, instantly.

Organisations still using traditional spreadsheets for scenario planning all too often become trapped in manual processes. Simulating business scenarios from hundreds of variables across all financial models, with spreadsheets, means businesses risk not having the agility to adapt to changing business environments.
