Webinar: Improving Month-End in Lean Accounting

August 11, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

In lean accounting “serving customers better” in the month-end close process focuses on:

  • Reducing month-end close to free up capacity to provide more value-added analysis of the financial statements and/or apply the capacity to other accounting processes
  • Meeting customer expectations regarding on-time delivery of financial statements

The benefits of improving month-end go beyond serving customers better. Month-end close is one of the best examples of overburdening – employees working beyond their normal capacity. Besides the month-end activities which must be completed within the required “closing time”, the accounting team must also attend to their “regular” work responsibilities. Eliminating the waste in month-end close will reduce overburdening and enhance the overall work environment for the accounting team, which demonstrates respect for people. 

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to apply daily lean management practices to control month-end close
  • How to identify waste in month-end activities
  • Specific approaches to improve month-end close
