Maximising people power: Effective talent management in Finance 

Finance functions now have a real opportunity to make a difference to their organizations’ success – whether in private or public sector, listed multinational or SME.

The economic crisis provided heightened visibility of the value that professional accountants bring, and the next decade presents an enormous opportunity for finance professionals to help create and sustain long term value for organizations. But this goal depends on the people within finance and the way that the organization develops and applies their talents.
