Overview

To assure the timeliness of the topics in this program, they are drawn from a review of several professional surveys of Controllers and CFOs. The most frequently noted areas are then incorporated into the program. The role of financial professionals has and continues to change in organizations. The stereotype of collecting and reporting data has been replaced by a broader vision which focuses on improving an organization’s results today and preparing it for the future. This brief program offers specific actions that can be implemented, by financial personnel, to expand their role through improving their organization. The actions and techniques provided build upon and improve activities that exist in many organizations (measuring, budgeting, hiring, risk management, etc.), as well as providing insights into capital allocation, cash management, valuation techniques, variables that influence capacity levels, M&A activity and actions to increase efficiency and innovation.
