Decision Support & Financial Modelling

Business management’s performance is judged on the quality of its decisions, and their subsequent execution. Resultant performance can be seriously undermined where decisions are made:

  • Based upon a poor analytical understanding of both past and present events;
  • Without demonstrably adequate reference to the available facts and figures;
  • Without fully understanding the existence and implications of alternatives available;
  • Based upon point estimates of variables, where spread estimates more correctly reflect the situation faced;
  • With reference to poorly constructed financial and operational models.
