This report is the second in a series of reports prepared by CFO Research Services in collaboration with KPMG International on the transformation of the corporate finance function at large companies around the world. In early 2011, we published a report titled, A New Role for New Times, which contained data, analysis, and commentary on a survey of 443 senior finance executives around the world on the strengths, weaknesses, and aspirations of finance teams at companies in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia/Pacific. To further document how companies are transforming their finance functions, we conducted a series of interviews with senior finance executives around the world. Our findings from these interviews are published in this second report, From Keeping Score to Adding Value.
