analyze financial numbers and find quick answers for basic questions important
on that level.
Annual Operating Plan, Business Plan or Budget is normally a cumbersome process,
the efforts required barely leave time to develop alternatives. With the
'Sensitivity Analyzer', you can easily play with the numbers, including changes
in product mix and develop alternative 'Scenarios' before you decide which case
you want to base your Annual Operating Plan on.
‘Annual Operating Plan’ (AOP)
For a successful
manager it is essential to know the current Annual Operating Plan. ‘Knowing’ not
in the sense of being able to repeat its numbers, but rather to have the feeling
for the elements critical for success.
Operating Plan’ (AOP) has items where small deviations of only a few percent
decide over success or failure. Other items can be off by tens of percentage
points without having a real impact on the bottom line.
Analyzer’ allows you to determine the sensitive items in your AOP. These are the
ones you want to monitor carefully during the year so you can react early if
they start moving in the wrong direction. On the other hand you don’t waste your
energies on AOP items that barely influence the outcome of the year.
Find the ‘Points of no Return’
It is always good
business practice to know, ahead of time, at what point you will start loosing
money. Explore these ‘Points of no Return’ with the ‘Sensitivity Analyzer’ and
then try to determine the probability of them happening.
From Nothing comes
Nothing. The 'Sensitivity Analyzer' allows you to quickly find answers for
questions like "if I increase the expenses for
Sales and Marketing, by what percentage do I have to increase the number of sold
units to achieve the same result" or "if
I lower the sales price of my products , by how much do I have to increase the
number of sold units", etc.
