Future Focused Finance Teams 2025 and Beyond
Updated: Mar 27, 2019
The business world of today is changing at a faster pace than 10, 5 or even 2 years ago. 2025 is not in the distant future, its tomorrow and your finance teams need to be future-focused and able to adapt to what’s in store.
Finance teams of previous years and many still today are focused heavily around maintaining controls, reporting, compliance and managing risk. They are completely reactive and backward looking and report on what has happened instead of what can be prevented going forward.
Roy Clark, MD of Clarkhouse Capital has an in depth discussion with some of the top CFO’s in South Africa today about the fundamental changes taking place in business and more specifically in Finance. They take a look at the Old Playbook of Finance consisting of 2D Ledger Reporting, long budgeting and forecasting cycles, routine reporting, operational metrics and “keeping the score” as opposed to the New Playbook of Finance which includes critical scenario planning and game plans, reporting by exemption (making reporting lean and agile), working with dashboards and predictive analytics, tapping into the digital freelance, finance world and the rise of future finance teams. Critically, this will shape the talent needed within a finance team and alter how this talent is found, nurtured and valued.
Join Roy on this journey of uncovering the obstacles, what the new balance of priorities are going to be, what the new talent equation will be and how to future focus your finance team NOW.
