What will future finance look like and which competencies are needed?
Included in NCC’s strategic initiatives is to build a knowledge-based company and to work in a data-informed manner. This requires investment in IT and digitization, and NCC has an development agenda of 20+ projects with a lot of focus on change management. Finance plays a big role in supporting the business to make more informed decisions and act upon insight end to end.
What is and will be the role of finance when businesses become more data driven? As this has been a discussion for years – is something different now?
During this discussion you will discuss how finance should organize ahead. Which behaviors and structures are needed to support the business. Discuss how to break through silos and help the business make better decisions.
Discuss and compare;
- What does data driven mean to you?
- What will the reason to be look like for future finance organizations?
- How should finance be organized end to end to ensure silos are bridged?
- Which competences will be needed to support cross functional and networked decision making?
My focus and main professional interest is to drive Finance Transformation projects and initiatives, supporting the CFO Agenda.Catrine Backman LinkedIn
