The COVID-19 crisis has created unprecedented challenges for all organizations. Dispersed workforces have presented challenges to the CFO organization in preparing financial statements and sustaining other critical activities. It has also forced finance functions to take a closer look at impairment, valuation, net realizable value, loss contingency and exposure considerations, to name just a few areas. By virtue of their role as strategic and financial managers and scorekeepers, CFOs, controllers and FP&A professionals are in a unique position to view corporate risks across the enterprise. They are also in a unique position to help develop plans for recovery.

Many things have to “go right” in order for digital transformation projects to succeed. These projects (e.g.; ERP and CRM implementations) often delay, disappoint, or fail entirely. A frequent, yet avoidable reason for failure is the lack of a prudent, well-conceived Data Strategy. A project-specific Data Strategy is developed once a business understands the information it owns, processes, controls, and needs – both in the present and in the future state. A proper system implementation plan should incorporate elements of the Data Strategy – including the more challenging, time-consuming tasks of data cleansing, relevance assessments, migration and cut-over planning, and the like. Planning ahead and considering data in these projects earlier rather than later can increase your chances of success with the project, as well as providing more sustained value.

In this session we discuss success factors related to prudent, proactive and intelligent Data Strategy – as well as other success factors necessary for increasing your odds of a sustainable digital transformation project.

Smooth seas make poor sailors. Leading a team across a tranquil pond can make any leader look like a pro. It's when the wind kicks up on the open ocean that our leadership skills are put to the test.

In this session, we'll discuss particularly important competencies and tactics to focus on as you navigate rough waters. When it's smooth sailing, you can probably get by without them, but when the water gets rough, they're essential to survival. You'll leave with specific things you can do to be more effective in leading your team through periods of uncertainty or particularly rapid change.
