  • Identify the factors that slow down your financial close process.
  • Develop strategies for speeding up the close process.
  • Develop a plan for implementing the business process improvement addressing the change management issues.

The pressure on the finance function has never been higher to deliver financial results as soon as possible after the period.  Managers, analysts, Boards, and investors are digesting market information in real time and are beginning to expect the same of financial results.  To meet these high expectations, the CFO and controller need to find ways to speed up their financial close processes to report the financial results before they become perceived as old news in the new world. In this course, Blair Cook, a many-time CFO, will explore ideas for shortening the financial close process.  Leading companies have found ways to close their books in as little as one day and see the benefit of almost real-time analysis (in addition to the actual period financial data) that can be performed with a shorter close.

  • Awareness of accounting principles.
  • Good grasp of the financial close process.
  • Accounting practitioners, supervisors, managers, controllers, and advisors.
