Course Developer

This event is part of the CFO Series - 2019 event bundle.
Do we really understand why we, and our companies, make the decisions we do? We may believe that we make decisions only after acquiring all the facts, carefully considering all the alternatives and logically choosing the best option. However, Nobel prize-winner in Economics Daniel Kahneman and his long-time collaborator Amos Tversky have proven in numerous experiments and studies that we make most decisions by intuition and not analysis. We’ll examine Kahneman and Tversky’s groundbreaking work and its implications on us, our companies and the accounting profession. The course will continue with an exploration of achieving success through experimentation. Study after study has shown that great successes rarely occur as the result of a giant leap, but rather from disciplined experimentation that builds on a foundation of learning and discovery. This session will help put you on a path of continuous achievement by teaching you how to experiment and create enduring progress. You’ll also learn a practical “real world” budget planning approach that aligns spending to long-term strategy, creates a culture of accountability and responsibility, and might actually be fun when everyone gets on board. We’ll conclude with a discussion on current best practices for finance teams to implement now and in the future.
