David Greenbaum on the Kruze Consulting podcast

Picture it: you’re at the big meeting, presenting the results of your giant financial forecast for a big acquisition to the CEO. You’ve worked on it for weeks, nights and weekends.The CEO is a cross between Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel. Can be nice, but snap in an instant. The numbers don’t make sense to him. Suddenly you realize — mortified — that you swapped an annual and monthly driver in the forecast, so it’s wrong.

Does this sound like a meeting you’ve been in? Did you wonder, how can Excel modeling be so fragile, and how can it be that the CEO is the QA for your financial modeling?

Our CEO, David Greenbaum’s been in that meeting. It was his neck on the line, years ago, and it’s what inspired him to build OnPlan, so that no FP&A pro would have to feel that way again.

Watch David tell the whole story and talk about his love/hate relationship with Excel in his chat with Kruze Consulting.
