Tips for Improving CPM Reporting through Trees & Attributes

August 17, 2021 – 10:40 – 11:30 AM Pacific Time

Presenter:  Paul Zunker, Senior Functional Consultant, Solver

Join Solver expert Paul Zunker for the session that finally uncovers how Trees and Attributes can help you maintain reporting consistency and minimize your report level maintenance with ease! Hooray!

Report maintenance and consistency are commonly impacted when:

  • Accounts are added or updated
  • Dimension values are adjusted
  • Other relationships in the data warehouse have been changed

Manually going into each report to make necessary changes to hierarchies, groupings, and other factors not only increases the risk of errors but can be quite time consuming. Imagine if you knew how to quickly incorporate these changes into all reports without having to go into each one individually. It’s all possible through the use of Trees and Attributes.

Although learning how to set up and leverage Attributes can seem super confusing and frustrating, this session simplifies the learning process and arms you with tips to make you feel confident about incorporating Attributes into your own financial reports.

Who Is This Session For?

You will benefit from this session if you are responsible for designing and maintaining the company’s monthly financial reports and you have a strong grasp of reporting concepts.

Sound like you? This session will provide tips and insight that will help you improve your monthly CRM reporting with ease.

What Does It Mean to Plan, Adapt, and Thrive?

This past year changed what many of us know and expect about the business world, and 2020 clearly demonstrated that new skills are required to succeed in today’s new business landscape. To make sure Ascend 2021 delivers on today’s top skills, we’ve divided each of our courses into different focus areas: Plan, Adapt, and Thrive.

  • Plan has to do with planning capabilities – Do you have the tools to proactively respond to whatever may be coming next in your industry or field?

  • Thrive has to do with building knowledge, building a better budget, and increasing profitability – Do you have the tools to go beyond the financial data to achieve more with your company?

This no-nonsense session helps you and your company Thrive because at the end of the session, you will understand how to efficiently start building reporting Attributes and Trees. Plus, once you have incorporated these into your reports, you can expect to see increased reporting speeds as well as a reduction or elimination of maintenance requirements at the individual report level.

Strategy, KPIs & Accountability

August 18, 2021 – 9:40 – 10:30 AM Pacific Time

Presenter: Corey Barak, Chief Operating Officer, Solver

Only 13% of companies successfully implement their strategy. So, why is strategy important? 3 reasons:

  1. It enables a company to plan based on what will happen in the coming year instead of looking at what happened in the past.
  2. It allows for Workforce Planning, which enables planning of resources needed in order to accomplish strategic goals.
  3. It will increase Organizational Alignment, as many throughout the company will be involved in the planning and therefore creates accountability among all employees.

Experts agree: pairing financial strategy with clear Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) improves performance by holding everyone accountable for agreed-on goals. Join Solver COO Corey Barak to see how to collaborate on strategy and create achievable KPIs that deliver full insight into how each employee, department, or organization is doing on a daily basis.

This session will go through how Solver can help you tie strategy and employee accountability together through employee KPIs. The process of measuring performance allows managers to:

  • Plan
  • Set work targets
  • Measure and monitor an employee’s effectiveness

As an additional bonus, all demoed templates used in this session will be provided as Excel files after the session.

Who Is This Session For?

You will benefit from this session if you are responsible for managing employees, setting strategy, or communicating initiatives.

What Does It Mean to Plan, Adapt, and Thrive?

  • Thrive has to do with building knowledge, building a better budget, and increasing profitability – Do you have the tools to go beyond the financial data to achieve more with your company?

This session helps you and your company Plan and Thrive because well-planned strategies help companies thrive. Companies need to set a strategy, put a plan around it, set the goals, and then ensure that all employee goals align with them.

Approximately 95% of employees do not know what the company’s strategy is; therefore, over 85% of strategies fail. Thrive only happens when there is communication from and to the entire company. Only in this situation will everyone be moving in the same direction, know the goals of the company, and know their role in getting there. This is where individual KPIs come in and employees can view their performance at any time throughout the year.

The 7 Simple Habits of Inclusive Leaders

August 18, 2021 – 8:00 – 9:30 AM Pacific Time

Presenter: Melissa Majors, CEO and Innovator, Melissa Majors Consulting

In this keynote, Melissa Majors will broaden the audience’s perspectives by asking questions about what do inclusive leaders do? What specific actions do they take to demonstrate a commitment to inclusion? Majors will reveal how great leaders enjoy superior team performance and drive much higher profitability by incorporating inclusive practices.

What she will find is that these behaviors fall into seven categories: Business Process; Collaboration; Mindset; Leading Self and Others, Decisions; Values; and Empathy.

Majors delivers clarity on how our brains are to blame for why leaders unintentionally exclude others. Through storytelling, research, and personal experiences, she offers a common-sense yet compelling and actionable approach to inclusion. She argues that people shouldn’t feel guilty or defensive when having inclusion-related conversations; the brain is to blame, not people.

Who Is This Session For?

This discussion is for all leaders: leaders of self, people, initiatives, and organizations that wish to Adapt and Thrive in today’s business landscape.

This session will provide a way for leaders to better understand techniques for adopting an inclusive mindset into their management practices. For some, this may be a unique outlook that they are not already doing so it’s a way to help them adapt to the new culture of inclusion expected in business and personal life.

At the end of this session, you will understand how to:

  • Identify and describe concepts such as intellectual humility, tactical empathy, and intersectionality
  • Gain insight into the habits and tactics used by inclusive leaders
  • Unlock access to social posts, job aides, and toolkits to help build inclusive habits
