CFOs and finance professionals: Time to change the way you work

Posted by Cuong Nguyen on

“It’s an increasingly complex world” (Accenture, 2012)

Today, economic turmoil and volatility are dominant and the roles of CFOs and senior finance managers are changing. Thus, it’s critical that CFOs are able to:

  • Get onboard with the CEO as a partner as well an advisor
  • Get insights on demand and involve in the company’s broader business
  • Make their voice heard on operational and strategic issues
  • Monitor risk and assure compliance proactively
  • Accelerate business growth in today’s volatile markets

the changing roles of CFOs

In fact, key findings from a survey conducted by ICPAS (*) report that:

  • Over 90% of CFO respondents indicate the need to support the CEO as a very important or critical key performance objective.
  • More than 90% indicate strategic business planning, risk management as very important or critical work responsibilities, followed by working capital management (88%), financial planning (88%) and financial reporting (88%).
  • Financial planning (89%), strategic business planning (80%) and risk management (76%) top the list of time spent by CFOs.
  • About 82%respondents rate C-Suite skills rather than technical skills as relatively more important to CFOs.
