Despite consensus among finance leaders that digital transformation is a top priority that warrants investment from their companies this year, finance leaders do not necessarily agree about the goals they aim to achieve from digital transformation, or even their timeframes for doing so.
These are the findings of a research study on which Grant Thornton partnered with CFO Research to survey more than 300 finance leaders from midsize and large companies. Among the study's most significant observations is the connection between finance leaders' time horizons for short- and long-term goals for digital transformation, and their timeframes for investing in specific categories of technologies to achieve these goals.
During this Webcast, we will highlight key results and implications of the study, including how finance leaders:
- Distinguish between short- and long-term goals for digital transformation,
- Determine their priorities for implementing specific types of technologies based on their time horizons for realizing these goals,
- Establish responsibility for, and improve their understanding of, how their companies invest in technology, and
- Assess their readiness, and that of their finance teams, to develop and execute effective step-by-step plans for digital transformation.
