Finance Strategy: From Cost-Centric to Source of Added Value

Most finance functions focus only on cost reduction. World-class finance functions also focus on capabilities that create competitive advantages, fuel sustainable, profitable growth and enhance enterprise value.

Today’s environment requires new, agile and differentiated approaches to finance operations and the ability to work as a proactive, collaborative business partner. Yet most finance functions remain largely focused on cost optimization rather than enabling enterprise growth goals and realizing more value.

Based on our extensive research of world-class enterprises, we understand what it takes to establish and sustain value-producing finance operations and global business services. We view finance organizations as strategic enablers of enterprise performance.
