Many CFOs who desire more influence on business strategy are finally getting what they want. This means they’re likely facing increased expectations to help drive profitable growth and bring finance into tighter alignment with the business, while keeping a firm hand on the fundamentals required for effective reporting and efficient operations. That’s a lot to manage – and it requires a new kind of balancing act that won’t come naturally to many finance organizations.
Pressure is nothing new for CFOs, but today’s environment of constant volatility has raised the stakes for many to excessive levels. CFOs are center stage as they work to manage the challenges of business strategy, operations and control – all converging in an exponential growing complexity. From regulatory scrutiny and shareholder activism to governance, growth and capital, CFOs have more to do – and more risk to manage – than ever.
