This 30-minute webinar summarises the results of FSN’s most recent research which seeks to explore the importance that innovation in reporting plays as finance professionals seek to transition from their traditional role in financial stewardship and good governance to a more outward facing role as strategic advisor and business partner to the rest of the C-Suite.
The webinar explores:
- the current status of reporting in the finance function.
- the ‘financial data maturity curve’ as a benchmark for assessing readiness for innovative change.
- the extent to which modern finance functions are using advanced collaboration tools to improve productivity in the financial reporting process.
The research, sponsored by Certent, finds that there is a close relationship between finance function effectiveness and innovation in reporting. In broad terms, finance functions that have mastered their data outperform their peers and have more time to devote to innovation, business insight and growth.
