Scenarioi Mapping

Scenario modeling helps institutions map out multiple views of the future, over different time periods, with different assumptions. Every institution has a list of financial drivers that can alter its trajectory. Creating a financial plan requires a deep understanding of the relationships and effects of those drivers. Join as presenters explore the planning and development process along with the inherent challenges associated with modeling and forecasting. Attendees will also examine a tool that can help configure new scenarios, allowing instant visualization of prospective outcomes.
