How to deal with increased complexity and uncertainties as an organization
In the spring edition of Zanders Magazine we briefly described the scientific theory behind our Framework for Acting under Uncertainty and Complexity (FAUC®), a framework that assesses complexity and uncertainty. This is an important topic for many organizations that has only received more and more attention worldwide. Now, we offer organizations our first practical application in the form of a concrete product, the FAUC® Assessment Report. Based on our specialized framework, this report describes and analyzes the weaknesses of an organization that make it vulnerable to future uncertainties and (both positive and negative) surprises.

Eric Matheny (AGCS) on the Treasury Triangle Concept
This autumn, Eric Matheny, responsible for AGCS’s global treasury, will give a Ted Talk at the AFP Conference in San Diego. The reason for this presentation is a concept he described for his company concerning a framework that optimizes the organization’s cash management and can be used globally, in any language, any culture and any business. Laurens Tijdhof, partner at Zanders, spoke with Matheny and asked him about the opportunities of the Treasury Triangle Concept.
In a time of exponential developing technology, ever changing regulation and global integration, the corporate treasury function is changing too.
