Finance diagnostics


Finance diagnostics

For a high performing finance department

The demands on finance departments are constantly increasing. As a result, finance departments are seeking to shift their focus from core accounting to more value-adding activities, including business partnerships that cover analytical and insight-oriented aspects.

Our finance diagnostic program focuses on reducing bottlenecks and inefficiencies in your finance department’s day-to-day activities and helps you implement pragmatic solutions.

Optimizing operations to elevate finance to a more strategic level

Until now, the finance department’s core role was to report on financial positions and operations to internal and external stakeholders while balancing capabilities, talent and costs. As a result, the finance department is often just a steward and operator.

We can help you enhance the power and performance of your financial execution by enabling your finance function to become a catalyst and strategic asset without neglecting its core mission.

Key principles for success

We know what it takes for you to succeed. Our finance process optimization services are guided by our well-defined and proven principles detailed below:

Collaborative: our approach seeks to involve process owners, as well as key stakeholders of finance-produced information, and is positioned as an exercise designed to alleviate the burden on finance staff executing core processes.

External perspectives: the project approach and our collaborative working style inject external perspectives into the exercise, leveraging leading practices to provide direction and ease the transition to new processes.

Experience-based: by using practitioners with “been there, done that” experience across all finance processes, the project team is positioned to produce clear, accurate, and easily-consumable deliverables.

Time-boxed: our focused approach and accelerators enable our team to capture sufficient—but not excessive—granularity, to avoid disrupting your team’s daily activities and to execute within our agreed-upon timeframe.
