A lot of attention in the integrated thinking and reporting movement is paid to large public companies. But integrated thinking is not confined to the market segment alone. In some ways, middle market companies have even more flexibility to think and manage in an integrated way.
In this month’s event, we’ll be looking at this market segment with guests who will share three sets of examples of integrated thinking:
- B Corp movement which provides a form of integrated reporting and certification
- U.S. valuation firm whose software uses an integrated filter on financials to create a corporate valuation
- International examples from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)
As always, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions.
