How strategic are you as a CFO?
John Stokdyk, global editor of AccountingWEB asked this question at the Connected Finance Team Access All Areas 2018 event.
Being strategic starts with understanding exactly where you are as a CFO, explained John Stokdyk, global editor of AccountingWEB.
“It’s all about the partnering approach, collaborating with your colleagues rather than spending all your time processing data, answering queries and hacking through Excel spreadsheets” said Stokdyk at the Connected Finance Team Access All Areas 2018 Event.
Stokdyk gave his view of what the role of the CFO should be, including reporting data effectively, conducting strategic analyses, managing data with automated tools and using data to communicate effectively with their team.
