ENG201.12. Putting People First - Evolving the Approach To Developing Finance Talent


Identification: ENG201.12



Half of finance leaders surveyed for the CGMA report Re-inventing Finance for a Digital World said that the competencies of their teams must "change significantly" over the next three years as technology takes over routine tasks and as finance teams seek to drive greater value.   This is supported by a recent report co-authored by KPMG called Finance Transformation:  The Human Perspective that said that more than ever, there is a need to create a more agile, strategically capable workforce. Yet under investment in people and skills means many finance professionals are ill-equipped to face a digital future.

Are we focusing on technology at the expense of the people who power it?

This session will leave you with some tools and takeaways to evolve and develop your finance talent.


Learning Objectives:
· Identify how leveraging digital technologies has changed the skills landscape
· Determine how this is driving new operating models and shapes of the finance function
· Consider how skills and competencies of finance professionals need to evolve
