HOW FINANCE LEADERS ELEVATE THEIR ROLES BY COMMUNICATING IN THE LANGUAGE OF DATA

Sponsored by Workday
DATE: TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2019
TIME: 2:00 PM ET
DURATION: 1 HOUR

Webcast Summary

As finance leaders strive to raise their value to their companies by contributing to strategic decisions, they are recognizing the need to seek nonfinancial sources of information in addition to financial metrics on which they typically depend. 

Compared with finance leaders who limit their purview only to financial information, finance leaders who rely on multiple data sources, including operational metrics, are better able to recognize opportunities to improve their companies' overall performance. 

During this Webcast, we will highlight best practices finance leaders can use to elevate their value to their companies, including how finance leaders can:

  • Broaden their finance teams' analytical capabilities to encompass nonfinancial indicators of performance,
  • Achieve company-wide alignment on financial and nonfinancial performance indicators, and
  • Foster collaboration among departments to better inform a company's analysis of its overall performance, and, as a result, better inform a company's decisions.
