Our Methodology

Our methodology

Organisational Redesign
Our advisors assess the skills of your current employees and evaluate opportunities to integrate cross-functional teams throughout the planning processes from departments such as finance and accounting, demand planning, procurement, sales and marketing, and HR. 

Process Improvement
We’ll assess your current processes and establish a current framework for linking strategic plans into annual planning and forecast processes. After developing and implementing a comprehensive, integrated business planning process, we’ll work across finance and HR to connect incentive targets to financial performance. 

Technology Enhancements and Automation
Together, we’ll look at the system architecture across business units and/or geographies. We’ll coordinate and implement your technology enhancement projects for maximum efficiency and results.

Improve the Quality and Access of Data and Reporting
Our advisors analyse or develop a standard set of reporting across divisions and at a consolidated level. They’ll perform strategic analysis to build or improve upon financial models, data quality, and data access, as well as identify opportunities to optimise operating spend and investments.

The need for improved forecasting in a challenging marketplace

The market’s volatility is changing the way organisations use forecasting approaches. The traditional forecasting method of collecting a stable set of fixed costs, demand projections, and other inputs is no longer enough to keep up in a rapidly changing landscape.

Now more than ever, we need real-time data at our fingertips to propel decisions at critical business junctures. With the help of Protiviti’s consulting services, we can amplify the impact of your organisation’s data and create lasting and meaningful change.
