In today’s fast changing digital world where data across all company functions are generated at every turn from ERP & CRM systems, organisations are increasingly turning to the concept of xP&A (Extended Planning & Analysis) Business Partnering to drive better decision-making and improved performances in the planning process.

xP&A, also known as collaborative planning, refers to extended planning capabilities across various functions of an organisation; not just finance, but sales, HR, procurement, marketing, etc. The latest technological advancements have enhanced FP&A frameworks in such a way that the office of Finance can now expand the traditional FP&A process to the entire organisations to ensure long-term success.

  • What FP&A needs to do to to take the lead in this transformation?
