CEB Finance Leadership Academy
3 Major Trends Are Changing Corporate Finance
CEB has observed 3 major trends that will significantly impact how finance functions operate in the future, particularly with regard to their talent needs and talent management challenges.
- Data and Analytics
- Finance Technology
Executives recognize the importance of those trends but they also identify them as the areas that finance teams are least prepared for.
Succeeding Requires a New Talent Profile
To capitalize on analytics and technology opportunities, and to succeed in a complex environment, Finance should focus on developing Pathfinder competencies. The Pathfinder talent profile is:
3X more likely to make and inform strategic decisions
2X more likely to be productive
3X more likely to recruit and retain the best talent
Today's Finance Teams Are Headed in a New Direction
CEB's Thomas Roberts shares how the most effective finance teams are built around the key Pathfinder competencies.
