Financial Process Management

By David Wagstaff


Have you seen a music conductor conduct an orchestra. With sometimes a light wave and at other times a vigorous shake of his wand, he times a melee of instruments to perfection, each instrument pitching in at the exact time, for the exact note. When you think of financial process management, think of a music conductor.

Every business, be it large or small, is comprised of a number of a inter and intra dependent processes and the health of a business is determined by the smooth and efficient functioning of these processes and how well these are aligned with the long term goals of the business and customers. Financial process management ensures that all financial and accounting processes are strategically aligned and are playing their part like a musician in an orchestra.

Simply speaking, financial process management is the ensemble of activities of financial planning and financial monitoring and reporting the performance of the business with the application of knowledge, skills, tools, techniques and systems to define, visualize, measure, control, report and improve the business performance with a goal to meet customer profitability requirements.


“Financial process management, therefore, is an important ingredient in ensuring that a business is able to profitably sustain the competitive advantage.”
