The Basic Building Blocks of a Shared Team Vision

Blog, Leadership | 11 Jan 2022 |

  To get an outperforming team we believe you need to have a shared vision that can lead you to collaborate around measurable and achievable goals. Equally as important, the ‘shared’ vision has ‘shared understanding’ with respect to what we (as a team) believe it means in practice.

How band-aid solutions can cost your company in the long run

Strategy, Leadership | 7 Sep 2021 |

Quick fix, don't we love them. And that's fair enough.    When an unforeseen problem is identified, there's a sense of urgency that comes with it. Everything has to be solved like, yesterday...    But what if solving the issue right away was a big waste of time and money? Let’s go back in time and take the example of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC.

Why consistent behaviours across the board matter to your company culture

By Rob Phipps | Strategy, Leadership | 10 Aug 2021 |

Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see” – and that goes for every member of your organisation, most obviously the senior leaders and the key protagonists.  An issue often brought up, when a company culture is not at its best, is that “expected behaviours” in line with the company values don’t seem to apply to everybody. This can dramatically impede your culture efforts...

How implementing new technology can make your finance team feel like “they were wrong”

By Lance Rubin | Strategy, Leadership | 29 Jul 2021 |

When a finance team starts to explore  technology,  they often have to look into the way they currently do things and how that might change. This can be very confronting especially when they realise ,  or  when it is  put out in the open  for all to see ,  that the way they were working was flawed or highly error-prone. This is very important to address as this  feeling of being "wrong" can limit the ultimate success and change that the technology is intended to produce.

If it’s not broken...let’s make it better. Changing the perception of change and “working in the grey” within your finance team.

Strategy, Leadership | 22 Jul 2021 |

A team’s  capacity  to  welcome change ,  when it is needed ,  is partially based on  their ability  to cope with uncertainty, tak e measured  risks and  “work in the grey” . This can prove to be challenging  if team members can’t relate to  the company’s vision or feel that  they  are contributing to a greater purpose   through  their work .

The Culture Gap: when a company culture doesn't match its actions

Strategy, Leadership, Culture | 25 Jun 2021 |

Company culture is often mistaken to be only about big words and big ideas. That intangible and mysterious thing floating in the air that everyone should somehow know about, understand and be part of.    While it is true that you can feel a company culture without always being able to pinpoint it immediately, it is actually much more structured and tangible than one might think. One very important aspects of culture is consistency between what is encouraged and how employees, at all levels, can demonstrate culture in action.

Downfall of a business leader: a misunderstood and inapplicable strategy

Strategy, Leadership | 9 Jun 2021 |

Have you ever been to one of those “Strategy Day” where, in the end, everyone just goes back to their BAU and nothing changes? Why would that be?   There are  potentially   a few  reasons .   But  one could be that no one really understood how to make the strateg ic direction  happen . As in  concretely ,  on a daily basis.     Team members were left to their own device not knowing the who, the what ,  the how and mostly the  WHY . As a result, they all went back to what they know and what keeps the wheel turning.     S o  what is and what is not an  implementable  strategy . Read more...

My team is not performing: is it a system or a culture issue

Strategy, Leadership, Culture | 1 May 2021 |

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good automation. We literally co-design automation and process excellence with several companies right at the minute. But before we did  that,  we  ensured  with them that this is really what they  need and looked at the bigger  picture  to guarantee  their   success in the future.   Does the following scenario sound familiar?  You r  organization  invests in  a big flashy  system or tool  thinking it will so l ve all  their  issues.  They spend  a fortune,  contract an implementation  team   and...  there’s no real return on investment .     So was the system the issue or should you look further.

PROJECT FINANCE OPERATIONAL MODELS

By Lance Rubin | Strategy, Leadership | 27 Dec 2019 |

This issue of speed is not only important because of the adage that time is money, but also because slow Excel files exacerbate the human brain’s already poor error-detection abilities. According to usability-engineering expert, Jakob Nielsen: 0.1 second is about the limit for having the user feel that the system is reacting instantaneously 1.0 second is about the limit for the user's flow of thought to stay uninterrupted, even though the user will notice the delay.

PART 1 of FINANCE INNOVATION: PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS VS FINANCIAL MODELLING

By Lance Rubin | Leadership, Lance Rubin | 25 Apr 2018 |

Despite writing a blog on the differences a year ago (albeit FM vs Analytics), many were not clear on the differences. It's almost analysis paralysis with all the jargon and especially when misused and twisted by software vendors around what it means to do modelling and analytics within the packages they are selling. The purpose of this blog is really to go a little deeper into predictive analytics and financial modelling.
