Finance vision and strategy

  • The role of the CFO as we know it today has evolved over time, in response to constantly being asked “How can Finance add more value?”
  • The Vision and Strategy are tools to improve the function, they should galvanise Finance into raising its game, and be the basis for building the Finance Target Operating Model (TOM)
  • With ever-increasing demands placed on their resources, CFOs need to appropriately balance insight, efficiency and control within the context of a wide range of strategic drivers, unique to each client
  • Aligning leaders around a clear Finance Vision and Strategy is essential to achieving clarity on and agreement to the function’s priorities, which in turn facilitates a successful delivery to the strategy
