Maximization of the Finance function through Business Partnering
The Finance function needs to evolve
The finance function (Finance) stands at the crossfire of both internal and external challenges. External challenges are best described by the pursuit of efficiency and the related chase for cost reduction in the wake of the financial crisis in 2008. In parallel, internal challenges for Finance have increased due to various reasons such as the increasing need for faster financial reporting production coupled with a limited quality of data and the need for centralized, clientcentric service models to respond to cost reduction as well as general efficiency and control pressures. These challenges lead to increasing pressures on Finance to create a high-performing business culture, while the function also experiences higher demands from the business to drive performance with increased focus on strategic advice and business insights.
