Mike Dobby, Vice Chairman and Finance Consulting lead, discusses the challenges faced by the modern day CFO.
In a competitive global business environment, organisations face significant commercial and operational challenges. Our clients are under increasing pressure to be leaner, more adaptable and responsive – while still satisfying the needs of shareholders and driving down the cost of doing business as usual. They must do this against a backdrop of tighter and more complex regulation.
As a result, the current day CFO is expected to fulfil an ever evolving and increasingly challenging role. Our Finance consulting team understand the challenges faced by the modern CFO to be that of a Steward, Operator, Strategist and Catalyst, what we call the Four Faces of the CFO. For a CFO to be successful, they need to ensure they have the right capability in their Finance function to meet the performance expectations of each of these roles.
“Our objective is to work with CFOs to meet performance expectations and deliver lasting results that are business focused.”
Our Finance consulting team have proven experience of working with clients through the lifecycle of Finance change projects, from business case, through to design and successful implementation in order to deliver lasting results that are pragmatic and business-focused.
