  • Changing models of competitive advantage and the need for a process that helps senior executives approach strategy formulation consistently.
  • Four orientations CFOs can undertake to become more strategic, including responder, challenger, architect, or transformer.
  • Core questions CFOs can ask themselves to generate strategic outcomes such as where will I play related to the company's goals?

Learn how each of the four orientations is a choice that shapes the CFO's involvement in the strategy process.
