The Future Office of the CFO

Defining the Framework: How to Optimize the Future Office of the CFO

The past two years have taught business leaders that the Office of the CFO must change in order to navigate future uncertainty. Research from a study of more than 200 C-suite executives conducted by CFO Dive suggests that nearly 70% of CEOs now view the CFO as an Enterprise Value Creator, rather than simply a finance and accounting steward.

How CFOs drive value in the future will depend on which strategic initiatives they choose to focus on to unlock hidden value and scalability, including investing in digital transformation. The right digital transformation initiatives will optimize financial operations by removing manual processes, ensuring company readiness across the world, and building long-lasting resiliency.
