While finance’s traditional focus has been on managing costs, to enhance organizational value it must move to greater support of the organization’s revenue management efforts. In this webinar we’ll talk about the importance of finance professionals supporting revenue management within their organizations, the various tools of revenue management, and insights finance professionals can deliver by being “revenue thinkers”.
