The CFO role is undergoing perhaps its greatest change in recent history, where operating as a highly effective CFO requires a more business-wide leadership role and the adaptability to keep up with the pace of digital disruption.
With the mantra of “adapt or die” ringing in the ears of the C-Suite, this paper highlights the challenges and path to achieving organisational goals, looking at fundamental areas in which CFOs must focus to be effective:
Managing the impact of digital disruption.
Balancing innovation with operational effectiveness.
Achieving standardisation across traditional finance functions.
Promoting an open-book approach to organisational data.
Making data and analytics a priority for the whole team.
