Leading Corporate Change: Challenges for the CFO

"The most successful CFOs marry the two types of skills, bringing together the external world of investors with the internal world of company management on an international basis."

The Pivotal Role of CFO

"The best CFOs view the finance function itself as a sequence of processes?through which they can exert influence and implement change. "

Investors Invade the Boardroom

"Maximizing shareholder value is becoming the number one priority for most publicly listed corporations."

Making Value Based Management a Reality

"The VBM [Value Based Management] system needs to combine historic and predictive views with financial and non-financial drivers of the business."

Driving Home Strategy with Performance Measures

"Frustrated by a failure to convert perceived improvements in operational performance into improved share prices, companies are adopting a value agenda to drive actions through performance measures."

Benefits of Effective Performance Measurement Systems

"An effective performance measurement system should deliver several benefits."

Designing an Effective Measurement System

"Designing an effective measurement system starts with understanding how the company's operational processes deliver benefits to each customer, whether external or internal."

The Power of Activity Based Management

"Forward-looking CFOs have known for some time that to help their companies manage mounting competitive pressures, they must find an alternative to traditional methods of cost accounting."

Activity Based Management and Product Lifecycle

"When companies learn the true cost of their products or services, often as not, they find they're backing the wrong horses."

Activity Based Management and Budgeting

"The [activity based budgeting] model sparks valuable debate between parties involved in each activity and their various customers and suppliers, both internal and external."

Implementing Activity Based Management

"It's possible to implement ABM stage by stage: piloting, integrating and embedding."

Activity Based Management and Strategic Direction

"To find strategic direction, even the most complex company with multiple lines of business should focus on major product lines, customer groups and markets."

Financial and Business Risk Management

"Assessing the business impact of a risk involves more than simply estimating the immediate financial loss."

Communicating Risk To Investors

"Different risks are shown to have different impacts on shareholders. Computing the effects of mitigating those risks lets you show the investment community the benefits of sound risk management."

Integrating Risk Management

"Developing risk management programs, CFOs consider risks in each of the key dimensions, their interdependence and relation to corporate objectives?good tests of a robust risk management approach in a changing environment. "

Re-shaping Business from a Value Perspective

"Knowing how and where value is created or destroyed enables the CFO and management team to make the right structural decisions."

Fight Complex Core Processes with Outsourcing

"Few companies can achieve world-class capability in every facet of their business. Through outsourcing, you can focus the business on what it does best while accessing the capabilities of others who are world class in what you regard as non-core."

The Network of Virtual Organization

"Gaining scale without mass, [virtual organizations are] able to buy the best services, whenever and wherever they need them."

Benefits of Shared Services

"What differentiates shared services from merely consolidating functions is the internal supplier-customer relationship that develops between the center and the business units it serves."

Accommodating Shared Services

"Whatever the approach employed, before implementing shared services the CFO must develop a comprehensive business case, setting out the business issues to be addressed, and the costs and benefits of the proposed solution."

Overcoming Shared Services Obstacles

"Two of the most common reasons for failed shared services projects are not communicating with stakeholders early enough and underestimating the impact of shared services on the corporate culture."

Implementing Shared Service Software Systems

"The systems software choice can account for big cost savings in the long term, by efficiently running redesigned processes and cutting both personnel and duplicate systems maintenance costs."

Changing Systems with New Technology

"For the CFO who wants to pursue the role of corporate architect, major systems change is an ideal arena in which to take the lead."

Changing Process with New Technology

"Considering each re-engineering opportunity alongside the company's strategic goals narrows the software solution options."

CFO Challenge: Choosing New Technology

"To look for the best software solutions, you need to consider three things."

Implementing New Technology Systems

"Aiming to minimize disruption to the business, the key is to plan work in short phases that yield maximum benefits."

CFO Challenge: Developing a Vision for Finance

"Finance functions that materially improve their value to the business share a common characteristic: their change is driven by the challenge of realizing a vision."

CFO as Corporate Architect

"The market looks to the CEO for leadership and inspiration, but to the CFO for reassurance and a realistic view of what's achievable."

Assessing Your Personal Development as a CEO

"Of all business functions, finance tends to lead fastest to the boardroom. This leaves precious little time for planned personal development."
