The strategic role of the CFO has become less about finance and accounting and more about becoming a strategic partner to the entire organization. It’s especially true as 2022 promised to bring continued uncertainty along with new opportunities for growth. Pushing forward requires CFOs to get involved in the business and convey the importance of the numbers to provide more strategic guidance to the business.
Read Financial Leadership: The CFO Playbook for Strategic Decision-Making to understand how CFOs can use their financial and business expertise to inform and influence financial, strategic, operational, and other decisions and actions across the company.
In this CFO Playbook eBook, you’ll read how more and more research is pointing to a modern CFO role that goes far beyond finance and accounting. Many strategic CFOs are taking control of workforce planning, IT, DE&I (diversity, equity, and inclusion), ESG (environmental, social, and governance), and more. However, about half of CEOs think their CFO lacks the business acumen necessary to effectively expand their role beyond finance and accounting. That has to change.
This disconnect between the broadening role of the CFO and the apparent need for increased organizational and business knowledge now gives CFOs an opportunity to expand their skills and close that gap. The ebook dives into several areas where CFOs can begin to focus their efforts in succeeding as a strategic CFO.
