Financial planning and analysis: centralised operating models empower the strategic CFO
CFOs are increasingly called upon to serve as key strategic partners for leaders across their organisations. CFOs are expected to provide authoritative insight, but to do so, they need a strong financial planning and analysis (FP&A) function. FP&A leaders, in turn, need better capabilities for their data-to-insight and insight-to-action processes to deliver relevant, accurate, timely, and scalable impact. Ongoing research sponsored by Genpact reveals that acceptance of advanced operating models is increasing in more mature organisations, as is the adoption of technology, data, and policy practices. This paper sets out some of the key findings of this research.
