Today, finance departments are expected to do more than provide the basic facts and figures for management decisions. They have to take into account global, regional and corporate economics, a competitive environment and regulatory and legal requirements.
In addition, general cost pressures, the need for higher efficiency and optimization targets are all bearing down on CFOs and finance departments.
The major challenges are to establish a business support network that continuously interacts with all functions - providing business insight and advice to all relevant decision makers, serving as a strategic enabler and shaping internal and external interactions. Also, the finance department needs to have an efficient and effective operating model for the CFO organization in place.
We help finance departments to assume a central and long-term role in strategic and business-critical decision making.
With our assistance, CFOs are able to develop new management capabilities and leave their former, more functional and administrative role, behind.
We also help to make their operations more effective and can advise finance departments on how best to provide insightful analytics - including costs, performance and risks - to management.
