FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

“Economic performance” is a major issue for the proper functioning of organisations. This performance can be broken down into several aspects:
•    Optimisation of the organisation and processes: reconciling organisation, economic performance and value creation
•    Strategic management: driving the operational execution of the strategy using a Balanced Scorecard type approach
•    Cost optimisation programs: implementation of competitiveness projects in the service of value creation
•   Implementation of business economic models (costs of products and services) and simulation models to project the economic trajectory over several years by aligning it with the overall strategy of the company
