Quick-win CPM projects to leverage and expand use of your CPM system

Read a CPM expert’s ideas for small-scope, quick-win CPM projects that can help your company leverage and expand use of its corporate performance management system.

We'd like to leverage our corporate performance management (CPM) system beyond our finance group. Can you offer some examples of small-scope CPM projects that might be good to start with? Where should we look internally for quick-win projects to see how expanding the CPM system will go?

The need for performance management technology outside of finance is significant. In most cases, the easiest opportunities for integrating other parts of the business with finance on CPM involve the annual budgeting activity and continuous planning processes. To expand on that, looking at working with departments such as human resources and operations on CPM initiatives is a great place to start. Then, depending on your industry, making a connection to the sales organization for planning around the forecast, pipeline and variable-compensation areas is also a great option.
