As the business evolves, so, too, do the roles for CFOs. When asked which areas are most important for increasing finance officers’ contributions to their companies’ success, respondents chose a deeper external knowledge of industries and markets, as well as a stronger understanding of their own businesses, ranking them as highly as they do sophisticated analytical skills and better technical skills. These types of skills are becoming increasingly important in a world where a large company’s resources must be channeled into its most solidly grounded businesses. By enhancing these skills and empowering their team with the right tools, CFOs will be able to have better risk management practices and more easily achieve their goals.
In an uncertain business environment, finance and accounting functions can help shape and improve the workings of the business, and finance leaders must make sure that their staffs are able to maximize contributions to the security and growth of the business.
The pace of business is faster than ever and finance leaders understand the importance of agility when responding to a changing business landscape. To compete, companies must be nimble enough to rapidly address changing market conditions without the need for major capital expenditures or complex communications.
