Building a Best-In-Class Finance Function

How do you know if your finance function is stuck in a rut? Do you manually produce the same reports, year after year—long after they have stopped being useful to management? Do you spend too much time making sure your numbers are right and not enough time figuring out what the numbers mean or what to do about them? Are you too caught up in your function’s highly specific challenges to understand what best-in-class performance looks like and how to achieve it?

In this webcast, recorded April 2022, AAFCPAs’ Managed Accounting Solutions leaders, Joyce Ripianzi and Lauren Duplin,  provide insight to help CFOs get out of the rut and step up performance!
