Finance Strategy

A finance strategy combines financial planning with strategic planning. The outcome is a functional roadmap that assesses current resources, costs and budget and aligns them with the company’s mission and goals. It sets a plan to align with enterprise goals to grow and innovate, despite changing and often unpredictable business conditions. A finance strategy sets priorities, manages trade-off decisions and minimize the costs of change to effectively finance critical initiatives.
