Analytics-Based Enterprise Performance Management (EPM)

0.7 CEUs


Many organizations are far from where they want and need to be with improving performance, and they apply intuition, rather than hard data, when making decisions. Enterprise and corporate performance management (EPM/CPM) 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; benchmarking, lean and Six Sigma quality management for operational improvement and measuring the Cost of Quality (CoQ); target costing for new products; lean accounting, resource capacity spending planning; and IoT 4.0 artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA). 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 course will describe how to complete the full vision of analytics-based enterprise performance management.
