Providing control over strategic decisions

Management Consultants NewsBoth publicly quoted and public sector organisations are under tremendous pressure to state forward-looking strategy and be held to account for execution against those statements. This is not new, but currently:

  • Greater levels of transparency are demanded by new legislation such as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Operational & Financial Review (OFR).
  • Greater penalties are imposed for failure to execute, particularly under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
  • Consumers are more demanding and have access to more information, be it government published league tables or company accounts.

Organisations are looking for help in streamlining their approach to these demands and require solutions that enable transparency and control over the execution of stated strategies.

Help comes from both consulting expertise and technology solutions such as Geac’s MPC performance management software.

There are opportunities for management consultants to engage with clients by deploying performance management applications. Technology can provide efficiency gains and transparency – but it is the consulting organisations who can enable clients to use the obligations of regulatory compliance as the catalyst to drive improved performance.

Geac MPC helps organisations to set strategy, define goals, create budgets and forecasts, track results and take corrective action, in a single integrated solution. UK customers include Aston Martin, ICI, Ernst & Young, Cable and Wireless and Old Mutual.
