Management accounting practices have become increasingly progressive since the 1980s. Many organizations are far from where they want and need to be with improving performance, and they apply intuition, rather than hard data, when making decisions. Collecting, validating, and reporting data is not the same thing as analyzing information where we can glean valuable, actionable insights. In this 8 Hour Online CPE Webinar Internationally recognized expert, speaker, and author Mr. Gary Cokins will take you through how to apply Business Intelligence and Business Analytics to the Financial data, Corporate Performance Management(CPM), Budgeting & rolling Financial Statements and Effective Management Accounting Practices.
Session 1 - Corporate Performance Management (CPM), Strategy Map and Balanced Scorecard
Corporate performance management (CPM) is an umbrella term that describes the methodologies, metrics, processes, and systems used to monitor and manage the business performance of an enterprise. You can think of corporate performance as the collaborative accomplishments, successes, and failures of an organization. Corporate performance management (CPM) is now viewed as the seamless integration of managerial methods such as strategy execution with a strategy map. Once implemented it links the strategies of an organization to their plans and execution, therefore helping organizations succeed.

Session 2 - Effective Management Accounting
Management accounting is the provision of financial and non-financial decision-making information to managers. In management accounting or managerial accounting, managers use the provisions of accounting information to inform themselves better before they decide matters within their organizations, which allows them to manage better and perform control functions.Critics have claimed that traditional managerial accounting is at best useless and at worst dysfunctional and misleading.

This Online CPE webinar covers the following key topics:
Session 4 - Business Intelligence (BI) and Business Analytics (BA)
Most organizations are drowning in data, but starving for information. The finance and accounting function has the opportunity to leverage Big Data and the continuum of analytics – descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive. All are useful for better decision making. Collecting, validating, and reporting data is not the same thing as analyzing information where we can glean valuable, actionable insights. In some ways, the finance function is many years behind other disciplines such as marketing, sales, and supply chain managers, in applying analytics. How can the CFO’s function catch up?
The demand for CPA professionals to be able to apply these tools is increasing every day. Don’t be left behind! This Online CPE webinar will bring you up to speed on the concepts, nomenclature, applications and tools associated with data analytics and business intelligence. You owe it to yourself as a CPA professional to attend this course.
