New year is generally seen as a time for reflection, optimism and change; this also applies to fiscal years, but usually without the parties. For many organizations, financial planning takes place two-to-six months before the close of the year’s books; so how can you ensure that you are planning accurately so that it reflects your previous year’s vision. And where should priorities be placed to build on the previous year?
Every business and role within the business has a different set of priorities and objectives which inform their financial planning. The process of considering budgets is well understood but how much focus is placed on the following?
- How are your investments safeguarded?
- How is your investment split on external vs internal outputs?
- How are you ensuring efficient delivery to a high standard?
- Do you invest to help win business?
Whilst clear ROI and achieving ‘external’ outputs are obvious priorities, the value and time placed on the internal aspects, such as your team and processes cannot be forgotten. Internal investment can reap significant long-term benefits and ultimately achieve cost savings through improved processes and enhanced efficiencies by ensuring clearly defined competencies.
