12:30 PM Workshop B: Positioning Finance as a Strategic Business Partner to your Organization

Expert surveys state that the organizations that outperform other organizations spend considerably more time, i.e. approximately 23% on Business Partnering. While, most back-office operations are capable of successful business partnering, finance is arguably in the most powerful position when it comes to effective business partnering given the wealth of data that exists within a successful finance department. As such, finance departments can often make a valuable contribution to decision making, commercial negotiations and strategy.However, we should not assume that business partnering is essential for all organizations.
 
In this deep-dive workshop, you can learn how an organization can develop an effective business partnering model with its finance department, what factors should be considered before partnering, and how to avoid the common and less common pitfalls of business partnering. 
 
·         Laying the foundation to manage the evolution of Finance from a transactional activity to a strategic business partner
·         Identifying the elements that contribute to successful partnering
·         Understanding the common pitfalls and overcoming these challenges
