Top takeaways from the Manufacturing Finance Summit
Great day with finance professionals at BMW with The Manufacturer and an inspiring tour of the BMW MINI smart factory to round off the day... my top 5 takeaways from the summit:
1. Why don’t we manage price as closely as cost?
2. Bridge the language and technical gap between finance and non-finance people to accelerate decision making
3. Getting culture right and engaging people is as important as the technology - build trust through small pilots
4. Excel remains our trusted friend... even though much more powerful tools are available!
5. Blockchain is coming... we just need the killer app
