Something to Consider: Breaking up the Work Day in Self Isolation

Something to Consider April 2020 1

Have no fear, this isn’t another invite to virtual beers or another team meeting to add to your diary!

You may have seen some of these webcasts before, you may have not had time to watch them before but we all need something to break up the day at the moment.

Some of us are working longer hours and all of us are working with an unusual cadence, at a desk that isn’t really a desk, on a chair not designed to be worked from, let alone the distractions of children/spouses/animals/news updates.

These are things you can watch and listen to on your daily exercise, to keep the cogs turning, refresh the brain and break up the day:

Shared Services/Global Business Services:

Global Business Services & Digital Transformation: Where Next?, Masterclass with Hackett Group 

Global Business Services: From Least Cost Operator to Value Creator, with ThermoFisher Scientific

Purchase to Pay/Source to Pay:

Global P2P Survey Results, Insights and Benchmarks

 7 Keys to Avoid De-Railing P2P Process Transformation

Risk Management, Financial Control and Compliance:

Eyes Forward: The New Age of Risk Management 

New GRC Perspectives – Risk Based Analytics and ‘Fact to Act’ Thinking

Fraud Prevention and Detection: The Impact of Corporate Governance, Internal Controls and Culture

Something a bit different:

How AI Can Save Humanity (or not)… – This is a philosophical look at AI in our world, not technical, with Dr Tom Gruber, one of the masterminds behind Siri.

What is the Business Case for Happiness? – very topical at the moment, an interesting insight into the chemistry behind happiness in our brains.

We hope these provide some stimulating distractions for 45 minutes and that you and yours are staying safe and well.

Our ‘Something To Consider’ snippets are framed as small, digestible, ‘dashes of insight’ around the pillars of what we define as “World Class Finance” – Process Optimization, Financial Control and Compliance, and Risk Assurance, all underpinned by technology enablement and integration.
