Private: Integrating Sustainability into Finance and Control Systems
- Format: Classroom
- Duration: 5 days
- Language: English
- Accredited: CPE, KHDA Certified training courses
Inter-connectivity, resources and efficiency are integral elements of planning and control; thus, integrating sustainability measures into decision frameworks is both needed and vital to managing the probabilities of successful continuity. The essence of sustainability focuses on the causal chain from strategy to key success factors to implementation to outcomes to revising strategy. If the multi-dimensional performance management/measurement system is considered to be a ‘balanced scorecard,’ then we have the basic categories of Financial, Customer, Internal Processes, and Learning/Growth. Interconnecting the basic categories of the Balanced Scorecard with sustainable elements becomes the ‘sustainability’ challenge.
In attending the programme Integrating Sustainability into Finance and Control Systems participants will be able to explore and evaluate the elements of sustainability: Economic, Environmental, Social, Governance [ESG] which is needed to understand the connection between a company’s strategic plan, its continued success and its finance/control systems in place. In this programme, participants will master valuable tools and techniques used by successful organizations to manage sustainability in finance/control. Participants will return to their companies ready to guide the organization in integrating sustainability, achieving breakthrough performance, and sustaining competitive advantage. Among the other best practices participants will learn to leverage the balanced scorecard concept for implementing sustainable value-creating strategies, use life-cycle and activity-based costing for measuring and managing customer profitability and integrating non-financial ESG measures into the decision framework.
The training session will focus on the following topics:
- ESG in the financial world
- Integrated sustainable strategy management
- Sustainability Balanced Scorecard Strategy Maps
- Life Cycle and Activity-Based Cost Management
- Key Performance Indicators [KPIs] for ESG
- Sustainable performance management
Sustaining competitive advantage worldwide requires more than just insightful strategy. To guide a company’s trajectory, today’s leaders need a balanced view of business that encompasses financial measures, non-financial measures and multiple control systems. In Integrating Sustainability into Finance and Control Systems participants will explore the important connections between strategy, sustainability, economic, environment, social, and governance performance measures.
Opportunities are offered to discuss the principles and practical application of sustainable systems for strategy formulation and implementation. The programme allows participants to return to their own organization prepared to implement sustainable systems across all business functions and initiatives, helping your company and colleagues execute sustainable strategy, achieve superior long-term performance, and improve the probability to sustain competitive advantage. Overall the programme aims to:
