It’s come to the time when we look back on our predictions & see how much we got right, how much we got wrong and how we can amplify for 2019.
My 2018 predictions:
Talent: How we plan to retain, engage and develop our people.
Transformation: automation and strategic opportunities
Leases: IFRS 16
At Amplify we work on all 3 & they all have proven relevant but I’d say I only got it 60% right. There’s other trends that have proven more urgent. Trends that take up my client’s time &
therefore my focus.
I don’t think Transformation is an answer. Amplify, in turn, doesn’t do it. We do automation. We do continuous improvement projects based on your business. We help build finance teams &
functions that scale!
We build them with practical processes & controls. Nearly every job we’ve done has had a project component & an opportunity to add value in a way that works but doesn’t necessarily meet
the Grand Cadillac scope (or price) of what others tackle.
My last 2018 prediction was on leases.... I got this mostly right.
Scoping and triage is an area Amplify has helped with. We have
that can be placed to assist with accounting memos but we don’t offer a full package like the Big 4 (partner & quality review). Systems as predicted have been a key part of the lease
transition. No system is perfect and it is curious why nothing was developed that can be diverse. Amplify has
that assist! As predicted this is a pervasive change but compliance can be challenging.
If you are still in the deep end we can help! Contact us today to find out how!
How close was I on my 2018 Talent prediction? I wasn’t wrong but I didn’t see what is now clear.
Contract work is a trend that is here to stay. You can’t have in-house all of the expertise you need for complex business. We help large, public & all size entities by filling the needs when
they happen. That is what our
services are all about. We also commit as
for a longer term. We provide
that are affordable & scalable at an executive business partner level. We built a business on Talent trends but not the ones I wrote about and predicted! I didn’t predict we’d take the leap
to amplify either!http://ow.ly/g8NN30mTEI8
