It’s time for smart finance leaders to change as well. Your intelligence, technical expertise, and analytical skills that got you here will not keep you here. The strategic, value-adding finance department of the future will embrace the skills desired by CEOs - communication, partnering, critical thinking, and business navigation. The skills that will transform the finance department from a historically focused, reporting and compliance center into a forward-looking, and creator of value to the CEO.
