Financial Management, Budgeting & Reporting

Today, chief financial officers (CFOs) are coping with increasingly complex demands on the finance function. To successfully meet these demands, CFOs need to create a "world-class" finance function, which involves answering some key questions:

  • How should I define the role of my finance function?

  • How can I best identify and manage strategic, operative, and financial risks, especially in times of crisis?

  • How can I build and sustain a world-class finance function with benchmarking processes in each department?

  • How do I increase the effectiveness of management reporting to best facilitate strategic decisions?

BCG’s work on the CFO function is based on our extensive knowledge and research activities, as well as on our project experience with many companies around the world. Combined with our unique strategic perspective and broad understanding of the finance function, these help us develop tailor-made solutions that create lasting value. Read More
