Proposed Template for Advance Pricing Agreements

STRATEGIC DECISION-MAKING MODELS

We work with key stakeholders to develop an understanding of the business problem, outlining key assumptions and drivers, and desired outputs

We then create the model using industry-recognized best practices and assist in implementing the model

EXAMPLE: A model to investigate the financial impact of whether or not to develop a new product line (go / no-go decision)

MODEL HEALTH REVIEW

Our Model Health Review process analyzes existing models to find critical errors, highlight inconsistencies in logic, generate useful visuals and insights, and provide recommendations on how to improve the model

90% of all spreadsheets contain errors; these errors potentially have material impacts on the financial and / or KPI outputs of models

A model review will enable those who are already proficient in Excel to ensure their models are accurate and transparent
