REINVENTING THE CFO:
How financial managers can transform their roles and add greater value
By Jeremy Hope, March 2006
Unbeknownst to most non-financials, the powerful finance function constantly undergoes painful introspection about whether they are accountants plus-plus, or are they integral components of the executive suite, working in partnership with the chief executive function.
Jeremy Hope suggests in his timely book that CFO’s can and should opt for the latter. Drawing some interesting case studies and personal experience, he structures the neo-role of CFO’s into seven key areas. A nice wake-up call for CFOs that prefer to define their role into unambiguous routine excel spreadsheet generation. The strategic world is your oyster.
- The CFO as Freedom Fighter
- The CFO as Analyst and Adviser
- The CFO as Architect of Adaptive Management
- The CFO as Warrior against Waste
- The CFO as Master of Measurement
- The CFO as Regulator of Risk
- The CFO as Champion of Change
