Does Your Month End Take Too Long?

Consider for a moment, the topic of month-end processing… Do you currently experience major difficulties in getting your month-end activity finalised within a reasonable timeframe?  Would you like to have it all wrapped up in 2 or 3 days, or perhaps even less?

If you do, I have some good news for you.

We at Infocube have teamed up with Conoscenti in sponsoring globally respected CFO coach and author David Parmenter on his Australian “Secrets from LEAN Accounting Teams” tour in February.   David is the author of “Winning CFO’s” and “Key Performance Indicators” and is an internationally acknowledged expert in coaching CFO’s to be more productive.

Leading up to his masterclasses in Sydney and Melbourne, we are presenting a series of articles written by David covering various topics that he will discuss in more depth during his seminars. The first of these is “Fast month-end reporting part one”. In this insightful article, David discusses the four initial steps to seizing control of month-end and cutting the time taken to complete it. These include:

  • Getting the CEO’s support
  • Setting the rules for the Finance team
  • Banning spring cleaning at month-end
  • Avoiding late adjustments

If you can apply just one hint from David’s article, it may potentially eliminate many days of effort from your month-end process – well worth investing in five minutes to read the article!

David is also running a webinar on Thursday 29 January at 10 am Sydney time and will be explaining some of the topics to be covered in the masterclass.  Please email me at [email protected] for more information.

As mentioned above, we are sponsoring David’s tour in Australia in February.  Please click here for more information about his “Secrets from LEAN Accounting Teams” masterclasses.
