Finance business partnering is about driving better business decisions to improve business performance.

 

Business partnering is an easy concept, but hard to deliver. Only 22% of Finance Directors deliver business benefits.

 

We’ve developed practical tools and methodologies to help your teams deliver results from finance business partnering.

What we do for our clients:

Consulting

Consulting

Do your business partnering teams continue to produce reports, double check numbers, and then say they don’t have time for business partnering?

Training

Training

Have the investments you’ve made in training and skills development delivered a step-change in the performance of your finance partnering teams?

Leadership coaching

Leadership Coaching

Do your Finance Leaders act as role-models for business partners, and do they lead the way for better finance partnering in your organisation?

What our clients say:

I’ve worked with many consultants over the years, and this is without doubt one of the best consulting projects I’ve ever been part of.
The ability of the Arcus team to connect with our people is impressive, ranging from senior business executives, our finance leadership, our finance teams, to large-scale ‘town hall’ finance events.
They clearly know what they’re talking about and bring a lot of credibility from a wide range of industries.

Nigel Bretton
CFO, Royal Bank of Scotland

Arcus have delivered so much more value for us than any off-the-shelf business partner training.

Do you provide INPUTS or OUTPUTS?

“I want my Finance Business Partner to provide INPUTS not OUTPUTS” This is what the Chief Exec of one of our clients said to his Finance Director, which I thought was quite insightful.
