Operational Corporate Planning

Operational corporate planning includes active, hands-on support in the preparation of corporate plans by the experienced planning experts at FAS AG. Operational corporate planning often focuses solely on planning profit and loss items. The forecasting of balance sheet items, such as working capital (receivables, inventories, liabilities), which is indispensable for cash flow and liquidity planning, is often neglected. However, this is indispensable, especially in times of scarce liquidity. In addition, data is still frequently generated outside of a professional planning system, for example with MS Excel, and then entered into the planning tool to enable at least a target/actual comparison.
