CFO Transition Labs

Overview of a Lab

The Deloitte CFO Transition Lab is a personalised and exclusive one day workshop for newly appointed CFOs. It is designed to help an individual CFO to make an efficient and powerful transition into their new role.

The Lab helps the CFO to frame their priorities, assess their talent and organisation and identify different approaches to managing their complex stakeholder relationships. The result of a day in the Lab is a clear action plan to make a successful transition.


Who is a Lab suitable for?

Each Lab is tailored to the individual. It is therefore equally suitable for experienced CFOs and those taking up their first CFO role.

We work closely with the CFO to ensure that their expectations of the day are understood, enabling us to maximise the value of the time invested.

Labs are designed and run for:

  • First-time CFOs;
  • Experienced CFOs moving industry or organisation;
  • CFOs looking to refresh their priorities and plan in their current role, e.g. following the arrival of a new CEO or a change in organisation strategy; and
  • Interim CFOs.



“Undoubtedly the best day’s development I have had in too many years to mention. I have been a CFO for 16 years and the day should be used to focus your mind, your energy, time and activity plans on what really matters – it was and is a powerful tool in helping me do just that.” (CFO, FTSE 100 Company)

“Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Lab. I have never had an experience like that before in my career. A whole day devoted to my success with an extremely talented group of thought partners. The issues and opportunities we collectively uncovered are focussed, important and clearly on the critical path of a successful transition for me”. (CFO, Global Consumer Goods Company)

“Thank you for a great session today. Very thought provoking and challenging. Particularly helpful on sorting through how to set my priorities.” (CFO, Global Pharmaceutical Company)
