Confronting a historic level of uncertainty has rendered traditional methods of data analytics, forecasting, and scenario planning all but useless. Predictions for the return to business-as-usual, as far as scope and scale, remain wide-ranging.  The old approach to the FP&A function is coming up short in an unprecedented crisis, but there is a path forward.
