Your finance department prepared to enable organizational Agility

The Agile for Finance and control training is aimed at creating a synergy between the controlling function of finance and the risks involved with the innovation process. The lessons delve deeper into how the correct use of the budgeting and management reporting processes enables the innovation of the organization in a powerful way.

The main aim of the course is to exploit complexity and innovation through adequate financial management. Participants do not need any prior knowledge of the Agile method. In this course, they learn briefly about topics that are indispensable for achieving time to achieve optimal organizational Agility.

Our trainers have both theoretical and practical experience. They operate actively in the field on a daily basis through their advisory assignments. This gives them insight into the challenges that arise at the intersection of financial planning and control and Agile working methods. By means of various exercises and best practices you will be provided with the necessary tools to have a direct impact in your organization.

Trainer knows much more than presented on the slides. This helps in being flexible on the content, to make side-steps and to elaborate/deep-dive where needed or where desired by the audience.
