Why the finance function is important for companies going through change

Ultimately any business transformation will be a financial cost. In the wake of the global financial crisis, the need for all business costs to be scrutinised in greater detail has intensified. Therefore, the finance function is often seen as the logical sponsor of most business transformations.

The complexity and maturity of companies is constantly changing. As businesses grow through expansion and acquisition they often add multiple layers of people, systems and processes that end up creating large inefficiencies, eventually culminating in a business transformation needing to take place.

However, before any transformation programme can begin, the role of the finance function is to propose a number of financially viable business case options for the organisation to decide the way forward.

CEOs will rely on their CFO and their finance function to create these viable business cases backed up by measurable targets and ROI. Therefore, your finance function needs to be commercially orientated and understand what is happening across the entire business.

What type of finance talent do you need?

Finance professionals today need to be focused on more than just the numbers. They need to be able to play a central role in enabling the business to operate effectively, from getting involved in major technology projects to negotiating supplier contracts.

Individuals need to be commercially savvy and have demonstrable experience at successfully integrating their skills across different disciplines within the business.
