The pandemic crisis has leaders in every industry preparing and making critical business decisions.  Many organizations are taking swift actions to protect their employee base and assessing the impact on customers and vendors – all while quantifying how this uncertainty affects their balance sheet, cash flow and liquidity.

When market disruptions arise, there are actions that organizations can take today to position their business for success no matter what news tomorrow brings. Organizations must prepare to confidently respond to three critical questions:
  • Can your organization rapidly model “what-if” scenarios across remote teams?
  • Based on the range of scenarios, can you quantify the impact on your liquidity, capital structure needs and cash burn?
  • Have you prepared contingency plans to address any financial, operational and cash flow issues for all potential scenarios?

The key to addressing these questions is having a strategic modeling  and connected planning solution that provides real-time analysis and the ability to statistically analyze an unlimited number of “what-if” scenarios for contingency planning.

Many organizations have de-emphasized the strategic modeling process following a period of favorable economic conditions. While the “rising tide” of a 10-year bull market elevated all businesses, the rapid shift in the market trajectory has revealed the importance of proactive contingency planning and connected planning. Join Oracle, Huron and their customer panel to learn why now is the time to invest in the solutions and resources that help prepare your organization for what tomorrow may bring.

  1. Why strategic modeling and connected planning  are important in  navigating uncertainty
  2. Based on “what-if” scenarios, best practices on quantifying impacts on liquidity, capital structure needs, and cash burn
