With the finance department both liberated and constrained by technology, CFOs will need to make sure their people – and they themselves – are up to the job.
The world is increasingly digital, complex and ambiguous. People are seeking purpose and growth opportunities at work. You need to build, organise and motivate a finance workforce that’s able to deal with this complexity, is equipped for the future and make the most of your investment in technology.
With the right blend of new tech, new skills, a new organisation and a new culture, finance can play a trailblazing role within the business − as an entrepreneurial driver of performance-driven strategies and data-based forecasts.
CFOs who get this blend right will be firmly in the driving seat.
Systematically address these five people and culture challenges, and you’re well on your way to transforming the finance function.
Business partnering is nothing new in finance. But how can you really own the business partner role?
Most finance specialists currently lack the capabilities they’ll need in future. How do you reskill and upskill your workforce?
Finance functions are investing heavily in new technology and automation. Does your workforce know how to use the new tools?
You might not find the future finance people profiles in the traditional job market. How and where can finance attract and recruit the right talents?
CFOs may not know how to lead with entrepreneurial behaviour embedded in an agile culture. How do leaders manage this mindset transition?
