The ABCs of CPM: Essentials for Private Equity-Backed CFOs

Webinar Whitepaper: Top Takeaways

On Thursday, August 12, Accordion hosted a (virtual) panel of executives to discuss the leading technologies that private equity-backed companies are leveraging as they professionalize and modernize the digitization of their operations. The panelists, led by Accordion’s Mike Cochran (Managing Director, Head of CFO Tech Services), discussed the critical role Corporate Performance Management (CPM) tools play in the path toward digitization, particularly for PE-backed companies that typically face increased scrutiny around the accuracy and timeliness of their data.

This whitepaper addresses the key learnings from that webinar, including:

  • The ABCs: Defining CPM
  • A 5-Step Cheat-Sheet for Understanding CPM’s PE Relevancy
  • A Blueprint for Dispelling the 5 Most Common CPM Myths
  • The ROI of PE CPM
  • The Universal Technical Institute CPM Case Study
  • The XYZs of CPM: Next Steps
