The finance function is evolving from a supporting role to a more strategic business unit, as CFOs and finance leaders are gaining more influence in driving corporate strategy for their respective organizations. A recently commissioned global survey shows that more than 70% of CFOs polled across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North America say that their strategic influence in the company has increased in the past three years, but still find themselves in a supporting role in corporate strategy development.
Cost-savings have been moving rapidly up the agenda of business leaders, but where to find these incremental savings has become more and more difficult to pinpoint in light of lower margins and increasing regulations. A recent global report on financial effectiveness states that the finance-function cost of average firms is more than 60% higher than that of well-run companies.
How then do you transform your finance function to a more value-adding business partner and corporate strategist?
And where can you identify improvement areas in your processes to generate cost-savings and efficiencies, bringing your finance-function cost closer to that of well-run companies?
