Is this you?

  • You’re frustrated because you’ve created business partnering roles, but your teams are still buried in producing the numbers.
  • You’re a newly appointed finance leader and you’d like to transform your finance organisation to add more value to your business.
  • You’ve established a shared services function for management reporting to free up time for business partnering, but it hasn’t had any impact.
  • You’re wondering whether you’ve got the right people in your teams for business partnering, and what’s the best ways to develop their skills to be effective business partners.
  • Your business colleagues see Finance as information providers instead of influencing business decisions or business strategy. How do your teams earn a seat at the business table?
  • Your business has re-structured and you’re wondering if there is a better way to organise Finance to be more effective as well as more efficient?
  • You’ve been transforming finance for a while but all the focus has been on efficiencies, processes and systems. You never seem to improve business partnering or decision support.
