Business is increasingly riddled with complexities. Shifting business models, disruptive technologies, unprecedented market volatility, and byzantine regulations set the stage for incessant change—where tomorrow will look entirely different from today. These challenges are redefining the role of the CFO. No longer are CFOs seen as responders—reactive leadership isn’t enough. They must now actively anticipate the challenges of the future; they must be transformative CFOs.
Transformative CFOs lay the foundation to define, manage, and deliver value. They drive large-scale programs to address cost and revenue. They build a strong, agile, and lean organization. And they leverage analytics to create an operative advantage. In sum, they are architects of business transformation, helping their companies to grow and achieve the next level of performance.
