The Evolving Formula for
Sustainable CFO Success
Building on a Foundation from Manager, to Leader, to Partner
Today’s finance leaders are facing a myriad of challenges: financial crises, market volatility, evolving finance standards and regulatory oversight, and greater complexity of underlying operations. The CFO role of the past was often narrowly focused on creating shareholder value and maintaining fiscal responsibility. However, today’s CFO must also function as a strategic business partner, driving a company’s direction and performance.
As the CFO’s responsibility evolves and expands, three distinct roles emerge related to the maturity of the CFO position: Manager, Leader, and Partner.
MorganFranklin’s white paper The Evolving Formula for Sustainable CFO Success explores each of these three roles and proposes ways in which successful CFOs can become effective partners to strategically propel the larger organization forward.
For each stage, learn about:
