The CFO has always held a vital role for the organization–they ensure a strong financial position and effective controls so the company can make decisions within acceptable levels of risk. As global markets become more competitive, CFOs are increasingly called upon to take a more forward-looking and strategic approach to financial management. While this means expanding their roles, CFOs must still maintain core financial functions like reporting, auditing, and compliance.
How should a CFO balance a traditional, fundamental finance function with a more forward-looking approach without risking inefficiency or putting strain on resources?
Join Levvel Research and Business Spend Management expert, Coupa, as we explore the evolving role of the modern CFO and what it means for an organization’s success.
