Build the Finance Team for 2020

Optimize Behaviors and Roles

Inadequately skilled finance staff is one of the greatest impediments to building an effective decision support organization. Senior finance executives are increasingly worried about the impact of widening skill gaps on corporate (and personal) performance, but don't know the appropriate steps to close those gaps.

To build an adequately skilled team, finance leaders must first properly define optimal behaviors and roles at each level, and then allocate finance staff accordingly.
