It is easy to focus on the “best case” scenario for technology implementations. Many assume that a selection and implementation will be a speedy and relatively pain-free endeavor if we agree to be aggressive. This bias towards speed in treasury can mean ‘cutting’ first and not even measuring once. Far too few make proper preparations for the design, implementation, and optimization parts of managing technology, and then suffer significant consequences. This webinar offers a tactical and data-driven look at common challenges and errors by treasury groups.
During this live webinar, exclusively for Treasury Ambassadors, Craig Jeffery will take an in-depth look at Strategic Treasurer’s recent survey data that has not been previously released to the public.
