The Finance and Accounting Organization as Strategist and Partner to the Business

Online Course Available 24/7 Location: Online CPE: 1.0 Format: On-Demand
COURSE DESCRIPTION

How have successful finance and accounting organizations shed the image of policeman even in the wake of added controls to become partners and strategists to the business? It is because they accept technical competence as a necessity. The added value they bring is they spend more time developing and managing critical relationships in order to learn all there is to know about the business, its customers, and the competition. This session explores how the finance and accounting organization positions itself to work as a trusted advisor to the business.
