The finance function is at the heart of any organisation, with high expectations from stakeholders. An effective finance function balances the four core roles of the CFO - Strategist, Catalyst, Steward and Operator. We refer to these as “The Four Faces of the CFO”.
We are rated by a series of analysts as the global consulting market leader bringing integrated capability across business transformation and technology integration: Gartner named Deloitte a leader for the second consecutive year, based on capabilities, in its 2012 Magic Quadrant for Global Financial Management Consulting Services
Our approach to your challenge
Our value driver and enabler model is the starting point to assess the current state of the finance function against leading practices and create an improvement plan or transformation roadmap.
We work with CFOs to deliver and improve value in the six key areas of their responsibility, the ‘value drivers’, across the finance organisation (performance and decisions, risk and capital, strategy and execution, transaction processing, close, consolidation and support, and regulation, governance and controls) and four ‘enablers’ (systems and information, policy and process, finance organisation, talent & people), which support the execution of the transformation.
How we can help
To drive improvements, we focus on reviewing the current state of the finance function against leading practices and identifying gaps across five key areas:
- Finance strategy and operating model
- Finance process excellence
- Finance talent
- Finance systems
- Finance analytics
These gaps are addressed by defining a plan and helping CFOs to redesign and implement improvements.
