CEB Finance Leadership Council for Midsized Companies

We help members mature the finance function by improving financial analytics capabilities and lowering process costs—which has been made increasingly difficult because of data proliferation and spikes in transaction volumes, business complexity, and accelerating internal customer demands. Processes and activities we support include: reducing time to close the books; transitioning to a rolling forecast; planning FP&A investments; selecting performance metrics; and implementing a finance-specific competency model.
