Financial Planning & Analysis

Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) is emerging as its own discipline, separate from accounting and treasury, and is forming strong relationships with the business to help drive financial results. FP&A professionals are seen as key business partners who deliver value and insight and play an important role in organizational planning processes. FP&A is one of APQC’s core focus areas within financial management for benchmarks and best practices research. Explore some of our suggested resources below to learn how you can benchmark and improve your own FP&A practices.
