Read the white paper, CFO Agenda for Elevating Finance

Effective finance transformation is built on what we call the five pillars of foundational competencies. This paper explains how an approach based on these pillars can help:

  • Streamline costs
  • Develop sustainable growth
  • Improve decision support
  • Increase the scope and value of services delivered
  • Maintain trust across stakeholders

What finance executives should know

KPMG interviewed 1,300 global finance and operations leaders, and the results showed a need for alignment between the strategy, resource allocation, supply chains, and go-to-market approaches:

  • Less than half of respondents say their key business processes are fully connected.
  • Only 42 percent are “very satisfied” with their ability to make informed decisions based on data.

Reimagine your operating model with a long-term strategy to harness extreme automation. Leading technologies can drive actionable insights to help you better understand your customers’ needs and unlock value. KPMG works with CFOs at many of the world’s biggest organizations to deploy and accelerate digital transformation. Together, we can recalibrate to stay ahead of change with future-ready finance.

  

How do you cross the divide from where you are today to where you need to be to thrive tomorrow? It starts with a vision of where you’re headed and a blueprint for how to get there. KPMG can guide you through disruption and into the future of finance.

How can CFOs evolve to redesign finance? We can support your transformation from “fixers to futurists,” enabling you to integrate leading technologies.
