Micro- and Macro-Scenario Analysis in Financial Modeling
Exploring your organization's financial future requires in-depth scenario analysis. Each possible future is composed of various drivers that can be organized into a macro-scenario. Although exploring macro-scenarios helps in isolating a good trajectory, finance professionals need to understand the variable micro-scenarios that make up each macro-scenario. Read this article to understand how micro- and macro-scenarios impact financial analysis, as well as why finance professionals need the ability to examine at both scales.
Modeling vs Budgeting: Organizational InterdependencyMany organizations are already projecting their operating budgets forward, but those budget projections are incapable of answering new strategic questions around capital projects and initiatives. See how Stetson University used Synario in conjunction with an existing budget model to answer a mission-critical strategic trajectory question.

Preventing Scope Creep in Financial ModelingScope creep is continuous or unscheduled growth beyond the agreed-upon confines of the model, which can lead to inefficient or unusable forecasts.
Design Thinking in Financial ModelingDesign thinking offers an experimentation focused approach to iteratively creating models with core-users in mind.
