How do you embrace technology to drive improvements in your finance function?

Creating your roadmap to finance transformation

December 11, 2019 10:00 am EST

Transformation is everywhere: delivering a better customer experience whilst improving productivity and reducing costs is the Holy Grail for almost every business.

Steward, operator, strategist, catalyst: today’s finance leaders must wear many hats, concerned with everything from maximising shareholder value to producing accurate quarterly earnings forecasts to developing the next generation of finance leaders. They recognise that to be successful they must obtain, interpret and report critical information at an ever-increasing pace, while ensuring compliance across a dynamic enterprise.

But as any CFO who has undertaken finance transformation knows, doing so is difficult and time-consuming. It requires careful planning and resources, and can be costly – especially without proper consideration of how to implement change effectively. Yet with finance transformation essential to keeping up with the shifting needs and strategies of the business, tackling these concerns is key.

So how do you approach this critical challenge? How do you embrace technology to drive improvements in your finance function? And how does that help create a finance function that enables wider business transformation?
