Why Bother With End-to-End Processes?

We have a choice . . . .

We can focus on enterprise value creation as well as cost reduction.

Fortunately, this is the top aspiration for Finance and GBS leadership in a recent survey.

Just consider Accounts Payable or Credit & Collections as examples in the end to end Source to Pay or Customer to Cash cycles.

But there are proven strategies that can help win executive and create a coalition for change.
