The 2010 IBM Global CFO Study
Who is increasingly instrumental in helping CEOs and Boards make high-impact decisions – the choices and trade-offs that build or destroy enterprise value? CFOs.
Based on input from more than 1,900 CFOs and senior Finance leaders worldwide, the IBM Global CFO Study indicates that the demands on CFOs are rising and extend well beyond traditional financial control and supervision.
But in a constantly changing environment, how can CFOs provide their enterprises with a competitive edge? How can they help the business make not just faster but smarter decisions?
In the 2010 study, one group of Finance organizations – called Value Integrators – consistently outperforms their peers. They are not only more effective, but their enterprises also perform better financially.
Their secret? Driving a combination of two key capabilities – Finance efficiency and business insight – across their organizations. Although study results show that each capability provides important benefits, the highest performers excel at both.
Read the study to learn more about this multiplier effect and how to create it within your own organization.
