FP&A is getting a major makeover. Rather than just pumping out quarterly reports and other finance formalities, CFOs and finance professionals are expected to take on far more strategic roles at their organisations.
When I started my finance career over 15 years ago, the role of CFOs and finance professionals was purely accounting orientated.
Digitalisation is a hot topic. Not only does it promise to streamline tedious and time-consuming FP&A processes, but it could also pave the way for CFOs like you to trade in their accounting hats and instead serve the role of active business strategists.
