CFO Advisory | Finance & Controlling

The speed of transformation in the finance function has continued to increase. In recent years, CFOs were often forced to focus on acute challenges such as crisis management and adjustments to the technical foundation, rather than on transforming the finance function for the major challenges of the coming years. 4C GROUP CFO Advisory supports you with issues like demographic shift, climate change, and digitalization. We offer strategies and solutions to align your finance function with securing the future of your organization and successfully navigating your company through the complex, disruptive business world.

CFO Advisory | Finance & Controlling

What Does Transformation mean for the Finance Function?

The existing acute priorities complicate the transformation progress of the finance function, which is crucial for the long-term success of the company. But what factors trigger this transformation, and how should corporate governance be shaped in the future?

Main Drivers of Transformation in the Financial Sector

The upcoming, significant shifts - demographic shift, climate change, and digitalization - are shaping the future. Additionally, there is a need for a new form of resilience in the face of ongoing crises. Notably, the predictability of these developments is remarkable. We already have a clear idea of what to expect and can even partly estimate the pace of these changes. Now is the ideal time to further develop the CFO's navigational tools. It would be irresponsible to miss this opportunity and thus risk competitiveness, or in other words, not to actively manage the structural risks that threaten corporate success.

    Transformation in the CFO Office: New Roles and Skills

    The roles and qualifications within the CFO Office are currently undergoing significant changes. Instead of controllers who compile numbers and reports, there is an increasing need for analysts and statisticians who perform necessary data analyses arising from products, customers, and supply chains. These analyses are essential for delivering and billing services, managing business operations, and evaluating strategic opportunities. The Target Operating Model in the CFO Office will more distinctly separate transactional elements in Shared Service Centers and Reporting Factories from the analytical components of Financial Advisors and Data Scientists. This shift in the finance sector requires a clear vision and a roadmap to be successful.
