Webcast Summary

As finance leaders take responsibility for informing and contributing to their companies' strategic decisions and long-term plans, they are recognizing that they need to expand their purview beyond finance.

To do so, finance executives must take the lead in breaking down organizational barriers to sharing knowledge. By eliminating informational silos, and by aligning financial metrics with a variety of other internal and external sources, a finance leader can present a complete picture of a company's performance while revealing opportunities to improve it.

By attending this Webcast, you will learn:

  • How the role of the CFO is evolving from that of a steward of financial data to that of a strategic partner, 
  • What types of nonfinancial data finance leaders are relying on to broaden their understanding of, and recognize opportunities to improve, their companies' performance,
  • What challenges finance leaders are most likely to encounter with identifying performance indicators, and with gathering information about them, beyond the realm of finance, and
  • How finance leaders can apply the latest advances in analytics to improve visibility into their companies' current performance and inform their companies' long-term plans for the future.
