What Does it Take to Achieve Success With Finance Transformation?

What does a transformational Finance organization look like?  What are some key traits to emulate?

Today’s fast-moving and competitive business environment has put a lot of pressure on CFOs to evolve their role, and that of the Finance function, from back-office scorekeeping to strategic business partner. What does that entail?  This expanded role includes providing managers with better insight into the true performance of the overall organization and increasing the agility of the organization to respond quickly to changes in the business environment.  

This may sound good on paper, but what does it actually look like, especially in key areas such as budgeting, planning and reporting?  Earlier this year, we asked Accenture to weigh in on what Finance transformation meant and how it could be realized. You can watch the recording of this webinar here.  While there were some valuable insights shared in the webinar, we realized that we focused on the how, but not on "what it actually looks like."  

So in our next webinar, we look back over hundreds of successful customer implementations and highlight the 7 traits we found common across many transformational Finance organizations.  We also hear from two of our customers, Room & Board and Latham Pools.  They will share their stories of having successfully transformed their finance processes, letting you hear what this looks like in practice.  

Join us on July 19th at 11am PT as we share these 7 tenets common in organizations that have successfully transformed their Finance function from back office scorekeeping to becoming strategic business partners - driving and supporting decision-making across the enterprise.

In the webinar you’ll learn:

  • How to recognize the challenges and needs for Finance transformation
  • How to encourage a transformational finance culture
  • 7 leading tenets to help develop and implement finance transformation
  • How two Host Analytics customers, Room & Board and Latham Pool Products,  have transformed Finance using our cloud EPM platform
