Accenture Enterprise Performance Management Consultant

  • 4-8 yrs
  • Not Disclosed

Job Description

Accenture's Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) solutions can help organizations dramatically improve their ability to organize, integrate and analyse a wide range of financial, operational, competitor and marketplace information to deliver sustainable high performance.

Accenture believes that an integrated approach to performance management, aligned to the corporate strategy, can drive sustainable high performance by focusing on, and managing, current and future value.

Traditional performance management systems focus on lagging indicators, current value and tangible assets. Many executives are dissatisfied with this approach, as it does not reinforce strategy or drive the creation of value. Managing for shareholder value is always a difficult combination of managing today's performance vs. tomorrow's growth. This is where traditional measures of financial performance fall short of helping management teams predict and make decisions around managing future value.

Accenture's Enterprise Performance Management service line focuses on helping clients address this dilemma. We believe that performance management capabilities should focus on current and future value of all assets, including intangibles, employing the use of an integrated solution.
