Move from intent to action in 1 day
Why dedicate a Day to a Finance Lab? Deloitte has created the Finance Lab to help CFOs and Finance executives’ jumpstart change within the organization. In a one-day, hands-on session, the Finance Lab helps executives articulate their vision, assess their organization, prioritize opportunities and mobilize around specific initiatives.
Today’s Finance professionals are often expected to play diverse and challenging roles – from running a tight finance shop and safeguarding assets, all the way to setting and influencing strategy. What we have heard from Finance executives:
- “Time is a commodity; I want to identify problems quickly so that we can tackle them.”
- “I’d like to get my leadership team aligned and moving in the same direction.”
- “I’m new to this role and want to change things to make the organization better. Where do I start?”
How Deloitte can help you
Deloitte has created the Finance Lab to help CFOs and Finance executives’ jumpstart change within the organization. In a one-day, hands-on session, the Finance Lab helps executives articulate their vision, assess their organization, prioritize opportunities and mobilize around specific initiatives. At the end of the day, you receive not just a set of initiatives, but an experience that creates alignment, commitment and a path forward. It will enable you and your organization to move from intent to action.
Many Finance executives recognize that there are opportunities to improve upon how they serve and support the business. The Finance Lab is designed to help executives:
- 8 AM Focus: articulate the executive leadership team’s vision for the organization and explore their stakeholders’ and customers’ expectations
- 12 PM Prioritize: assess the organization’s current competencies and identify and prioritize opportunities for improvement with the future vision and expectations in mind
- 5 PM Mobilize: develop actions to address gaps and move the organization towards the future state vision. Also, identify barriers and success factors.
The one-day Finance Lab is comprised of a standard set of modules which can be customized with delivery options and activities to create a unique experience that suits client needs.
