Organizations need to spend more time understanding risk and less time managing data— approaches that deliver that efficiently and effectively, and drive quality into the process, have immense value.” - Jim O’Connor Managing Principal Advisory Practice Hackett Group
Sometimes it is necessary to reinvent the wheel. Outdated legacy systems, manual, messy processes and workflows, and teams who need to be reskilled to embrace digitisation are all common aspects of the pre-transformation journey within finance SSOs and GBS organisations.
And yet, in 2020, the Finance SSO leader has a vast array of tools in his or her kit to proactively address functional and business-wide transformation. In this session, strategise how your finance function is required to transform, and walk away with a clear plan for the future.
You will discuss:
• From “Back-Office” to “One-Office” – proactively moving up the value-chain to support enterprise-wide decision making
• The role of digitalisation, risk-based automation and IA on your future operations
• The challenges of automating complex processes and how you can ensure your teams prioritise materiality over routine
• How you can drive end-to-end process excellence to bring a reduction in the cost of finance and agility to manage change
