In any large organisation, decision-makers rely on reports to give them the information they need for strategic conversations and decisions. The numbers are the foundation of goal setting, budgeting, forecasting, product development, sales strategies, and so much more. The more you can rely on your numbers, the better decisions you are able to make.
However, numbers can be fickle. While they seem to be entirely objective from the surface level, the truth is much more complicated than that. If you take figures at face value without understanding the underlying context and choices and compromises that went into producing the report – then those assumptions and biases are simply baked in, and you’ll never have a true understanding of what the numbers are saying.
When Apliqo UX was built the team was on a mission to transform the interface of FP&A tools and bring a consumer-focused perspective to the data we were visualising. It’s long been their belief that merely having the data available for analysis is not valuable unless it is presented in a way that people can act on.
As storytelling creatures, bland spreadsheets and reports don’t really speak to us and so we risk losing out on all the value in our financial and operational information if we cannot find a way to present it both impactfully and functionally to our users. That’s why the Apliqo team focused a lot of their development efforts on crafting some powerful and unique tools for report builders so that they can tell their financial story with gravitas – in order to shift the narrative and persuade management decision-makers to take action.
Accurate forecasting is a severely underrated skill in modern business and one that you should be looking to improve if you want to maximize the value of your planning and analytics. But the only way to do this is to have a feedback loop where you can look back on the forecast methodologies that you used in the past and assess how they fared when coming up against the uncertainties of the real world.
It’s for this reason, that a forecast post-mortem can be such an eye-opening component of your FP&A journey.
