CEB Financial Planning
& Analysis Leadership Council

CEB Financial Planning & Analysis Leadership Council helps companies use financial analysis to improve the quality of their decision making, make smart capital investment decisions, and align financial planning with strategic and operational planning processes. We do this by providing key data, diagnostics, tools, answers, and training targeted to heads of FP&A and their teams.

Our Research Focus

Equipping our members with strategic guidance and tactical tools on the topics most important for their function is at the heart of what we do. We don't just point to where you need to go: we provide you with a roadmap and a suite of implementation tools to get you and your team there. Key topics include:

Zero-Based Budgeting

Implement a successful zero-based budgeting process in a systematic way.

Boost Your Cost IQ

Companies with a high cost IQ are 10X more likely to use multi-budgeting (i.e. the adoption of 3 or 4 budgeting models) versus a single (or even dual) budgeting model.
