Webcast Summary

To elevate the value of their finance teams to their companies, CFOs are investing in process automation that frees up time their teams can dedicate to essential strategic endeavors such as forecasting and planning.

During this Webcast, which is the first of three Webcasts on about how CFOs can prepare their finance teams for the future, we will discuss: 

  • How companies have traditionally understood the roles of their finance teams,
  • Why CFOs and the finance teams they lead are expanding their roles beyond retrospective reporting to help guide their companies' forward-looking decisions,
  • What CFOs will expect from finance teams in terms of skills, training, and collaboration with other areas of their companies, and
  • How CFOs can partner with other executives, including those in human resources, IT, and procurement, to ensure they hire and develop finance teams with the capabilities their companies will require for the future.
