Financial forecasting to manage through disruption

In this webcast, finance leaders will discuss how they have guided enterprises through disruption to markets, operations and personnel — and which forecasting and scenario planning techniques enable them to manage the enterprise and communicate with stakeholders.

As factors outside of management control continue to drive rapid change, it may be critical for companies to forecast enterprise performance for strategic and statutory purposes.

This webcast panel of industry and EY finance leaders will provide strategies for developing, interpreting and messaging robust forecasts based on how they have guided businesses through periods of economic, market and personnel disruption.

In particular, we will cover:

  • Disruptive events that have affected the panelists and their businesses
  • How to improve the governance and process around forecasting to be more adaptable
  • Improving technical and systemic mechanisms to generate resilient forecasts
  • Evaluating risk through scenario planning, sensitivity and simulation techniques
  • Incorporating forecasts into business processes to develop robust plans, drive accountability and manage stakeholder communications
