Companies are increasingly being asked to lower their operating costs or find new efficient ways to deliver controllership services. How can organizations manage new risks that may be introduced when changing the way they deliver controllership? We’ll discuss:
- How to prepare for and develop a plan to manage risk through the operating model and other strategic changes
- How to maintain controls that may affect systems, policies, processes, and the talent model
- How to design a sustainable process and environment that enables the intended benefits of new operating models
