Finance Business Partnering videos

Changing the focus of finance

Expectations of Finance are changing. Not only has the recent shift in external pressure resulted in the need for leaner and responsive back office functions, but there is now great demand from the business for Finance to drive business performance. This demand is driving CFOs to turn their attention towards Finance Business Partnering.

Deloitte 2012 Finance Business Partnering Survey

Responses from our 2012 ‘Changing the focus: Finance business partnering’ survey has confirmed the key challenges that organisations need to overcome:

  • The tangible value of partnering activities is not well understood, making it difficult to identify priorities and focus areas for developing Finance Business Partnering capabilities
  • Internal information is frequently not credible or accessible, and external data is not commonly considered a key input for Finance Business Partners, meaning that they do not have the tools that support them in making good decisions
  • Leaders recognise that partnering often requires a new set of skills and behaviours within their teams, but are unclear about what competencies people do need, and how to develop and retain this different talent pool.
