FMN - 2018/January, Seg.2 - Financial Reporting Process Improvement: The FCA Chrysler Journey

Course Overview
At a time when everyone from corporate executives to regulators and investors wants more, and more timely, financial information, many enterprises are realizing that each additional accounting standard - such as U.S. GAAP or IFRS - adds yet another layer of complexity to the reporting process. Using Fiat Chrysler as a case study, Workiva's Joe Howell and FCA Group's Ed Young demonstrate that financial reporting process improvement depends on harnessing three resources: people; processes; and technology.



Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Identify the resources an organization must harness for financial process improvement;
  • Recognize why Fiat Chrysler Automobiles need to reduce its reporting complexity;
  • Identify the major elements of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' 2014 financial reporting initiative; and
  • Recognize the impact of FCA's current projects on profitability and talent development.
