Our world is being shaped by global mega trends, from climate change, to rapid urbanisation, to geo-political turbulence, to emerging technology. The traditional foundations upon which businesses were built are also subject to seismic shifts, and back-office operations must come out from the between the goal posts.

The CFO’s office has to become more agile and play an active role in helping the business to outpace quickening competitors, with data at the core of this new tactic. Precious company information is brought together by the CFO’s office, which can be leveraged more effectively to identify key opportunities and risks.

Digital technology is enabling CFOs to carry out this new, offensive role, equipping their organisations to take more strategic, targeted action. The successful CFO office of the future will be seen as a quality controller, and a forward-looking planner seeking to score goals for the business.

This topic is a gateway to understanding the crucial balance between autonomy and centralisation that will characterise the winning businesses of tomorrow. Mastering this concept is the key that will untap immense value locked in the data used by your finance function, and improve it’s effectiveness and efficiency overall.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Finance tends to be the key entry point to large scale transformations, and it must evolve accordingly
  • Finance is critical to creating value, particularly in strategic transactions like IPOs, acquisitions, and divestitures
  • Transformation is not linear; the starting line is different for each company
