Gary Cokins, who presented for CAW Network USA in 2021 on Data Analytics, returns to Share his thinking on one of his favorite topics – Analytics based EPM. This session will help attendees learn how the seamless integration of enterprise and corporate performance management (EPM/CPM) methods, that are each embedded with advanced analytics, will exponentially increase an organization’s performance. This event is eligible for 1 CPE credit if attendees request CPE and meet NASBA requirements.
Many organizations are far from where they want and need to be with improving their performance. They apply intuition, rather than fact-based data, when making decisions. Enterprise performance management (EPM) is now viewed as the seamless integration of managerial methods such as strategy execution with a strategy map and its companion balanced scorecard (KPIs) and operational dashboards (PIs); enterprise risk management (ERM); capacity-sensitive driver-based budgets and rolling financial forecasts; product / service / channel / customer profitability analysis (using activity-based costing [ABC] principles); customer lifetime value (CLV); supply chain management; lean and Six Sigma quality management for operational improvement; and resource capacity spending planning. Each method should be embedded with business analytics of all flavors, such as correlation, segmentation, regression, and clustering analysis; and especially predictive analytics as a bridge to prescriptive analytics to yield the best (ideally optimal) decisions. This presentation will describe how to complete the full vision of analytics-based enterprise performance management.
