For managing multiple portfolio companies, it is crucial to receive the desired information at agreed times and in a comparable way. To guarantee that the reporting pack is standardized, predictability maximized and the working capital optimally controlled, a Blueprint is an absolute must.
The Blueprint project is initiated together with the management of the portfolio company. The start of this project is a QuickScan which provides insight into the current position of the organization and what needs to be done to achieve the strategic goals. This is approached from an Accounting & Control perspective with a focus on end-to-end processes, design and automation. The outcome of the QuickScan is a detailed project plan developed in order to achieve the desired situation. The four most important products of the Blueprint project are the implementation of an Accounting Manual, Control Framework, Reporting Framework and the Planning & Control Cycle.
