The CFO role has shifted from internal focus to external focus, from cost control to growth levers, from retrospectives to foresight, and from execution to business strategy.

It's a great time to be a CFO, but there's also a lot of new ground to cover. This paper gives inspiration from those who've done it before.

Based on original research from Spendesk and our partners, this guide explores topics including:

  • Building a winning finance function

  • Digitalizing and automating core processes

  • Smart approaches to reporting and forecasts
