THE FUTURE OF FINANCE: INSIGHTS FOR CANADIAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FINANCE LEADERS
Today’s economic uncertainty and rapid external change have finance organizations pushing to accelerate technology and talent development. Most finance leaders have set their transformation agenda around efficiency improvements in the “back office” (e.g., shared services), combined with investment in the analytic and partnership capabilities of the “front office” (e.g., FP&A). However, Gartner identifies several significant external trends and changes to the business landscape that should have government finance leaders rethinking their five-year ambitions for the function, especially as it applies to technology and talent. This complimentary webinar looks at the leading current trends, their impact on finance’s areas of comparative advantage relative to other functions, and the resulting mandates for creating a top-performing government finance function in the coming years.
