Translate growth into sustained profitability

Costs have outpaced revenue at S&P 1200 companies since 2013 and only continue to increase. CFOs must find ways to achieve sustainable profitability. For over 15 years, Gartner's finance research team has been closely studying business growth in companies to identify the underlying traits that lead to success. 

Rather than focusing on expanding the scope of the portfolio, leading CFOs concentrate on and invest in a few big growth ideas. Read the Top Insights to learn more about a winning cost structure that leads to sustained growth.

Create decision-ready management reporting

Management reports built to share performance data are all too often inconsistent, difficult to organize for analysis and not truly reflective of the business. As a result, many finance leaders believe their management reporting is not ready for the business to use in decision making. 

Gartner Top Insights for Finance dives into the new approach finance executives can take to improving the decision-readiness of performance data and management reporting.
