Driving Performance in Financial Services
Intuitively, many of us recognize that the decision window for executives has been shrinking with each passing year.

Take for instance commodity prices, which have seen increasing levels of volatility in recent years. Imagine you are a company impacted by the price of natural gas (Figure 1) and consider the implications these price swings can have on your business model.
