Gross-to-net (GTN) management is
complex, dynamic, unique, and proprietary. Further, the impact of this
time-consuming process on your organization’s financials is material. There is
a need for well-defined processes and models to support accruals, true-ups,
forecasting, reporting, and analytics. These models must also be flexible
enough to change along with your business.
In this webinar we will demonstrate
how a typical pharmaceutical organization can approach building GTN processes

differently, we will present the flexibility of the Anaplan platform and walk
through channel forecasting by brand, net sales forecasting, and accrual

Both the recent Impetus-led Anaplan Model Builder Training Session and Spotlight on Connected Planning Events in Chicago were tremendously successful in enabling and connecting Anaplanners throughout the region.
Over 30+ Anaplanners attended the training session, raving about the event and citing learning best practices, access to the new UX, networking, and seeing and hearing how other clients use Anaplan as the most useful benefits of the event. Said one participant, “The Impetus team was fantastic, both with classroom led and individual support during the session.”

This week, Stephanie Kim, Talent Development Manager at Impetus Consulting Group, was the instructor for Anaplan’s Level 1 Model Building class in New York City. These instructor-led sessions are offered through Anaplan Academy. Impetus is excited to partner with Anaplan on this endeavor as both organizations are committed to increasing the number of Anaplanners around the globe. Impetus believes that leading with enablement is the key to Anaplan implementation success.
When thinking about Anaplan’s implementation framework (The Anaplan Way), we have found that sponsors and project teams who allocate time to enablement during the foundation phase of an implementation create a lasting culture of conversation that persists long after the deployment of their first Anaplan model.

Impetus Welcomes its Newest Team Members and Celebrates its Anniversary.
This is a very exciting week at Impetus Consulting Group. First and foremost, we are thrilled to welcome eleven new employees to our team, including the members of our first-ever college recruiting class. The size of the class is a testament to the power of our internal Anaplan Enablement program as well as to the strength of the culture we’ve built.
This week we also celebrate five years in business. Impetus
was founded with the idea that there was a better way to do consulting; that we
could be a force for change in the lives our employees, our clients and our
partners. We believe in the value and sustainability of our collaborations and
relationships built inside and outside of the organization. Five years in, that
founding principle still guides our behavior and our decisions.
At Impetus, we believe the overall success of the company is
driven by its people. We have been fortunate to assemble, enable, and grow a
team of deeply curious, talented, and passionate people committed to the
success of our clients and each other. Together, we relish the opportunity to
support our clients to define and build the future narrative of business.
2019 has been a banner year for Impetus. With this latest
hiring class, we’ve surpassed forty total employees. We recently engaged our
fiftieth unique client. Earlier this year we were named a “Small Jewel” by
consulting Magazine; a rewarding validation that our approach to building a
firm through trust and credibility resonates with others in the space.
We look forward to continued growth of our people and
expertise and driving success for our clients and partners.
Impetus is excited to be bringing its special brand of enablement to Anaplan’s Minneapolis office. Impetus’ Karen Trainer, Wendy Wen, James Maloney and Josh Mueller met with members of Anaplan’s Connected Planning Internship Program to discuss what makes a successful Anaplanner. The program is intended to help foster the next generation of talented model builders by providing a unique opportunity for interns to immerse themselves in the Anaplan culture and community.
As an Anaplan gold partner with a proven track record for
educating and enabling Anaplanners, we were thrilled to be able to share our
stories and a little bit of our secret sauce. In the coming weeks we plan to
return to provide some additional learning opportunities as we do our best to
help shepherd the next generation of Anaplanners across the globe!
