Finance Transformation



As any CFO who has undertaken finance transformation knows, it is difficult and time-consuming. It requires careful planning and resources, and can be costly, especially without proper planning. But finance transformation is also critical if finance is to keep up with the changing needs and strategies of the business. Deloitte helps finance leaders address the most critical priorities in enabling the finance function to support and create value for the business — from establishing finance as a trusted partner to the business to developing a high-performance operating model, improving core processes, and managing ongoing performance.

Our Finance Transformation offerings

Not only does finance transformation engage virtually every aspect of the finance organization and the business itself—it requires integrated capabilities, ranging from technical to strategic. Our Finance Transformation services address critical issues facing finance across major industry sectors, including vision and strategy, organization and talent, business processes, and technology. Each offering is composed of select finance transformation services configured to provide more value to our clients.

Business finance

Performance management. Planning, budgeting, and forecasting. Cost and profitability management. Capabilities in these areas can serve as a catalyst to the finance organization—but they can just as easily keep it stuck in the same old ruts if not managed properly. Clients tap our business finance offerings to realize specific business objectives through these areas and more.

Our offerings include:

  • Principles of performance management
  • Planning, budgeting, and forecasting
  • Cost and profitability management
  • Management reporting and analysis
  • Business partnering

Finance strategies

When the stakes are high, incremental change may not be enough. It may be time for a change in direction.

Our offerings include:

  • Finance strategy

Operational finance

The finance organization is only as strong as its foundation. That’s why we’ve built a practice that excels in its focus on core operational processes such as order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, and more—foundational elements for enabling top-line business strategies.

  • Order to cash
  • Procure to pay
  • Fixed assets
  • Close, consolidate, and report
  • Shared services design and implementation
  • Outsourcing design and implementation

Organization and people

Big changes to the ways in which finance is delivered have led to big changes in the finance organization itself and its people. Whether focused on talent, service delivery models, or organization design, we bring a deep team to our clients’ toughest organizational and people challenges.

Our offerings include:

  • Talent
  • Service delivery model design
  • Organization design

Process and policy

From internal audit to delegation models, processes and policies should give the finance organization a standardized, controlled environment. If your environment is too chaotic, we can develop and implement a policy framework that helps.

Our offerings include:

  • Internal audit
  • Delegation of authority

Specialized finance

In the finance organization, some enterprise-wide processes require specialized experience. These processes become only more important in the context of finance transformation. We work with clients to shore up their capabilities in these areas so that they actively help support broader transformation efforts.

  • Accounting: From technical accounting issues such as GAAP and IFRS to risk and compliance programs and controls, we bring a depth of accounting experience and insight to each finance transformation initiative.
  • Treasury: Improving the end-to-end cycle of the treasury isn’t just a matter of addressing the individual dimensions of processes, people, or technology—it requires addressing them in tandem. That’s where we can make connections for clients that others might miss.
  • Tax: How does your organization’s tax strategy—including legal entity and tax structures—align with its operating model? Working with clients, we help provide tight alignment by implementing solutions that are both scalable and sustainable.
  • Investor relations: Keeping investors abreast of and engaged with finance goals is a responsibility that is only gaining in importance—and yet it is still too often overlooked. We help clients execute and communicate a cohesive value proposition to both internal and external stakeholders.
