As the finance function has emerged over decades, our measure for success has been timeliness and accuracy, and more recently, the notion of ‘value’ and ‘insight’ is becoming more widely used. In 2020, finance teams are playing in both ‘sandpits’; looking for ways to remove lag and automate tasks to complete them more quickly & consistently, whilst also seeking to be increasingly proactive around proving more valued insights and counselling decision makers with trusted advice to help them drive towards achieving their business objectives.
This transition to the ‘sandpit’ of value creation is not always easy to achieve, leaving many finance professionals focused on being the ‘mechanic’ for a more ‘robust’ finance operations. And there is nothing wrong with this if that is a deliberate choice.
