Inflation is high (but falling?), job markets are tight (but loosening?), and supply chain challenges are easing (are they?). CFOs cannot easily budget for the timing of "volatility flare ups" in their cost and product/talent procurement centers, leaving budgeted margins open to downside. So how can finance leaders get out in front of challenges and help their organizations respond faster? Join your peers to share war stories and best practices on ways you can better manage margins as the winds change.
Pricing Responsiveness - Partnering with sales and customer success to proactively get out in front of pass-through price increases
Hard Input Costs - Partnering with procurement on vendor strategies to minimize fluctuations in raw material and other non-labor input costs
Labor Costs - Partnering with HR and business units in response to labor shortages and wage inflation
Process examples to speed cross-functional communication through finance
Tactics and off-the-fairway strategies in managing customer and vendor pricing
Risk management and stakeholder communication to C-suite/BoD/investors
