Leading Through Change and Business Partnering

As finance leaders, we continue to evolve our thinking on how we strategically partner with the business and approach work behind the scenes. With the ever changing competitive and regulatory landscape, shifting focus is critical to continued success.  How do we transform our role as Finance Partners to provide a true value proposition to the organization? Leading change through a Finance organization deeply rooted in history is not easy but is often necessary to enable the businesses we support to survive changing marketplace dynamics. This session outlines how to approach and overcome obstacles during transformational change.
