The CFO has always played a key role in any organisation. The Digitisation of the Finance Function has elevated their position. Now they are the Captain of the ship driving the organisation forward and helping all departments across all aspects of the business to make better and far more insightful decisions. These decisions not only affect the bottom line but they also affect how organisations hire and deal with their customers. If you have not begun the process you better get a move on, if you have commenced the process you better get it right.
