Webcast Summary

Today's CFO plays a much more operational role than in the past, from partnering in strategic business decisions to taking a broad view of risk management. CFOs must invest to drive digital maturity and get the visibility they need to reduce risk, optimize efficiency, and maximize business results.

During this Webcast, we will share a case study that illustrates the journey from finance team member to CFO by taking the lead in enabling an organization to improve risk management and operational efficiency, especially with procure-to-pay (P2P) processes. We will discuss:

  • How the role of the CFO is evolving to encompass operational risk management,
  • What recent research reveals about the relationship among digital maturity, visibility into P2P processes, and business results, and
  • Best practices in and lessons learned from applying digital transformation to P2P and operational risk management.
