- Harmonization of three organizational planning process – strategic, business, and organization

The historical role of the Financial Planning & Analysis Executive focused on budgeting, forecasting, and strategic planning. While still important, today’s Financial Planning & Analysis Executive has to be more of a thinker with honed accounting, technology, analytical and leadership skills.
It is critical that today’s Financial Planning & Analysis Executives have a broad view of the finance world, not only within his/her company and industry, but also across the financial spectrum of what other Financial Planning & Analysis Executives are doing to meet today’s challenges.
