Finance teams are spending far too much time on month-end reporting. The monthly finance report is often merely a memorandum of information, taken home, by the executives, in the briefcase and only scanned as the real decision-based reports are those issued daily and weekly. In other words, telling management the horse has bolted after month end is too late.
