As businesses become more accustomed to turbulent landscapes, they know they must fundamentally transform the way they work to meet new expectations from consumers and ardent demands for sustainability. To thrive, organisations must connect, predict, and adapt at speed, placing data at their core and embedding digital technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), throughout.
CFOs and the finance function are taking an increasingly important role in this process. This report lays out the significant shifts that CFOs and finance must make to help their companies succeed.
