For many CAOs, the COVID-19 challenge provided a great opportunity to transform the way they do things. By urgent necessity, out went myriad manual tasks and in came a host of automated processes, helping to speed up the modernization of the finance department.

In a new report, CAOs as transformation leaders, KPMG takes an in-depth look at what the most proactive CAOs are doing and what obstacles remain to get more done. We also discuss the prospect of CAOs sharing their transformation experience across the wider enterprise, thereby transforming their own career outlooks.
