|In order for businesses to operate successfully, they must establish a consistent and streamlined finance function. Key to achieving this is engaging effectively with the rest of the organisation on finance matters, often with parties who have very little or no finance knowledge. To be effective in this context, finance professionals need to focus on acquiring and utilising a diverse range of soft and hard technical skills.
Most organisations are impacted negatively by a lack of inter-departmental communication which often extends the time frame of processes and contributes to unnecessary cost and missed opportunities. Overcoming communication barriers is the key to achieving organisational buy-in for business improvement and is a crucial element to achieving stream-lined processes and increased efficiency.
Creating and communicating a value proposition for finance is a key part of driving change with non-financial business units. By forming strong cross-functional ties, finance teams can create a system that minimises loss and facilitates business success for all stakeholders. Attention must be focused on aligning finance strategies with broader business requirements and objectives.
This interactive workshop will provide participants with the tools and techniques they need to embed positive change and drive finance efficiency in their organisation. It will focus on overcoming the common barriers that prevent organisations from realising their potential in a finance context. Participants will explore different ways to engage internal stakeholders, to encourage accurate execution of protocol.
