For Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) striving to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the finance function, finance outsourcing and offshoring are compelling options. Finance outsourcing and globalization have profoundly impacted finance operations in recent years, and the trend is projected to continue. However, for organizations seeking world-class performance, finance outsourcing and offshoring must be viewed within a broader operational context that includes strategic transformation initiatives and continuous process improvement. Optimal finance outsourcing, offshoring, and transformation strategies for particular organizations will depend on such factors as the role of globalization in the strategy of the broader enterprise, the cost of capital, and the complexity and risk profile of the specific finance processes under consideration.
