Research: Evolving from a controller to a strategic business partner

IMA® (Institute of Managed Accountants) and Deloitte surveyed nearly 800 (majority US) financial professionals in the controllership function to learn how they’re navigating the challenges of their roles, what skills they feel they need to evolve, and how they continue to add value to their companies. This report provides information on factors that can have a more positive impact, provide more value, and help professionals in the controllership function evolve into strategists and catalysts within their organizations.
