Plan as a Team With Built-in Collaboration
An active business performance planning process is a collaboration between your finance team and the rest of your organisation. It’s based on shared, robust financial and operational models, and it’s a continuous, ongoing process rather than a traditional once-a-year budgeting or forecasting event. Workday Adaptive Planning enables the entire collaborative planning process from forecasting your business to monitoring and analysing your business performance to generating and sharing financial reports and performance dashboards.
Orchestrate Your Management Team
Workday Adaptive Planning’s native workflow allows you and your team to sequence, assign, and track tasks for business owners throughout the business planning process.
Manage Planning Processes With Clear Visibility
Workday Adaptive Planning’s Process Tracker helps you manage collaboration and provides real-time visibility into the status of planning processes and individual tasks across your organization. Assign process tasks to contributing users and then track their progress at the individual and cross-process level.
Make It Easy for People to Participate in Forecasting
Easily create step-by-step guides for your users, tailored to their specific roles, with links directly to the location in the financial forecast where their input is required. Simplify the process and help occasional or new users collaborate in each budget and planning cycle.
Share Notes With Everyone
Cell notes enable users to enter comments, assumptions, instructions, and a variety of other information useful for collaboratively planning. Notes follow a cell, making information available to reports and dashboards leveraging data and formulas from that cell.
Respond to Performance Changes With Agility
Compare plan versus actuals as a team and you’ll understand what happened. With that knowledge, you can collaborate to determine how and why the variance occurred. Drill down to underlying detail to analyse contributing factors. With real-time information, you can use your variance analysis insights to evaluate alternatives to course-correct. With scenario management, you can determine the best path to achieve your objectives, despite changes or challenges during execution.
