Ron Dimon's new book, "EPM Done Right" provides a framework for how executives should think about and use Enterprise Performance Management to improve revenue growth, asset utilization, cash cycle, profit and operating margins.
Online PR News – 01-April-2013 – Troy, Mich. – CheckPoint Consulting, Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) implementation services provider, offers executives a comprehensive framework for using Enterprise Performance Management in a new book, Enterprise Performance Management Done Right, an Operating System for Your Organization, written by Advisory Services Partner Ron Dimon.
“Ron Dimon shows us a way to think about EPM holistically and directly connects it to what’s important in the business: sustainably delivering stakeholder value,” said Gebhard Rainer, executive vice president and chief financial officer at Hyatt Hotel Corporation, in the foreword.
This book helps executives maximize information locked inside organizations to improve revenue growth, asset utilization, cash cycle and operating margins. It describes how to implement a discipline so that operational and tactical activities flow from strategic goals, focusing the entire organization. As a result, data and information silos dissolve, inefficiencies are exposed and finance and IT initiatives can be aligned more efficiently.
“We have been implementing EPM solutions for years,” said Greg Feld, co-founder and managing partner of CheckPoint Consulting. “Our clients are hungry for more ways to wring value from their processes and systems. Ron’s book shows them a way to do that with a vision for EPM that’s directly tied back to the income statement, balance sheet and cash flow.”
The foundation for EPM Done Right comes from Dimon’s 25-year career in finance systems and 14 years working with EPM. He currently uses the concepts described in the book to advise clients and help them refine business practices and build EPM roadmaps and performance playbooks—this is the origin of many CheckPoint Consulting implementation projects. Client results are featured among EPM Done Right case studies.
EPM Done Right was published by John Wiley & Sons and is available for order on Amazon.com and other bookseller sites.
