Finance Transformation

Transform your finance team to maximize business profitability

Finance transformation mandate: Do better with less

Finance leaders struggle to balance increasing demands for finance function support with decreasing finance function budgets. Many are initiating finance transformations to manage these pressures, but only 30% of these efforts succeed.

Using Gartner resources, we cut the time needed to restructure the finance organization in half, and we achieved a high-quality outcome.

Finance operational efficiency

A driving factor for many finance transformation efforts is to drive productivity and cut costs. The best way to start evaluating the areas that need improvement is to start with benchmarking the metrics that are key to finance operational efficiency.

Finance analytics

Many finance leaders find it difficult to convert finance analytics to business insights as part of finance transformation initiatives. Recapture the value of finance analytics in corporate decision making.

Finance talent

Finance talent needs are shifting at a rapid pace, and it is vital to finance transformation success that finance leaders equip the finance function with next-generation skills.

Shared services

Finance transformation initiatives require significant alignment with shared services. Adjust the back office to be more cost-efficient.
