This multinational consumer products company was conducting budget review meetings twice a year. Each of the company’s nine Asia country’s offices was using a different format to present their reviews, in spite of similar information being presented across countries. The Asia division wanted to simplify the process with a standard template that could be used across all countries for their budget reviews.
Fractal Analytics developed an 80-20 approach to ensure that the standard presentation decks would cover at least 80% of all business requirements. Parameters included:
The client teams in Asia can now use standard presentation decks provided by Fractal to understand business performance much faster and easier for their reports, giving them more time to make decisions.
The standard decks covered most of the information needed by country teams for budget reviews. Only a small amount of information needed to be created separately. By simplifying the deck creation and streamlining delivery, each country can receive two versions of the deck in every budget review cycle so that they can review business performance trends and start early preparation for budget review processes.
