Future CFO Report

The future CFO Report, as featured in The Sunday Times, is scripture for every CFO heading into 2020. This report collates and beautifully presents stats about the finance function in the form of minimalist infographics, and bolsters this with insights from leading figures in the finance function. Priorities regarding tech, transformation management, and the changing role of the CFO are all outlined with input from top-ranking finance professionals, creating a roadmap for success within your own organisation. 

“Assumptions of chief financial officers are often outdated, and organisations that are repositioning them at the centre of the business are making enormous gains.”


Key Strategies, Digital Enablers & Skills Prioritised – SSON Analytics Report

In collaboration with our flagship event, The Future of Finance & CFO Summit, the SSON Analytics team recently surveyed executives in the region and put together this interactive report that is available to download here. In the lead up to 2020, key forces shaping the Finance function are digitisation, analytics and the value proposition of Finance. 

“Almost all of the Finance leaders surveyed (95%) agreed that there is currently a skills gap in the Finance function.

The top skill lacking at the moment is the digital know how and being sufficiently tech savvy to work with the latest digital technologies increasingly being incorporated into Finance.

This is followed by the importance of inculcating soft skills in managing and working with people as the Finance function transforms to a broader role of being a strategic business partner.”

Through reading this report, you will be shown the measures of success in Finance Shared Services, and how Finance can overcome hurdles to advanced analytics and empower executives with data literacy. A key example of the insight the report provides is the map of key areas where Finance can benefit from leveraging Artificial Intelligence. All of this insight is bolstered by the contributions from present CFO’s, who responded to questions about Finance’s future value proposition, and how digitisation is an enabler of success.


How to Design the Optimal Finance Model for the Future

While the centralisation of business services support in Shared Services has yielded tremendous benefits and advantages, continued pressure upwards is pushing Finance to deliver “more.” Many customer concerns relate to problem-solving, whereby analysing finance processes can drive different decision-making, lead to the reengineering of processes, solve bottlenecks, and leverage data analytics for insights. How to Design the Optimal Finance Model for the Future is the quick-start guide to designing your ideal finance model. With the dawn of a new year fast approaching, now is the best time to get ahead of the competition. Using this piece, you can begin your preparations for innovation. 

“In the future, finance talent will need to combine strong competencies in new technologies with the highest levels of customer service and relationship management. Some finance services are starting to look outside their traditional talent pools, at the hospitality industry to access the kind of customer service capabilities that will differentiate the customer experience. As many functional process capabilities are impacted by automation, traditional human-based based relationship skills will come under the spotlight.”
