Finance Transformation 

Could transforming your finance function help transform your business?


Finance transformation is aimed at creating a finance function that is able to influence business leaders to make better business decisions. It will help to clarify the role of finance in driving strategic business imperatives, and will focus the finance function on delivering the right information to the right business leaders at the right time.


Many finance functions are still struggling to produce real business information that helps business leaders make the right business decisions. 


"Up to 50 percent of managers place no confidence in the numbers presented to them.”

Our White Paper on non-core services in the Public Sector includes new perspectives on how to respond to these massive financial challenges over the next few years. When some organisations in the public sector devote up to 60 percent of their costs on support functions, the scale of impending cuts faced is such that a complete rethink is required.



Written in association with CIMA, this paper explores 5 key areas on how to achieve finance business partnering, and its importance to profitability and shareholder growth.



This report, written in association with the ACCA, looks to summarise the key trends, with some suggestions and examples of how companies and organisations have used a strategic approach to finance talent management to generate a competitive advantage for their organisation.
