In most global markets, CFOs are optimistic about their company's growth opportunities. Deloitte's CFO Signals Report, "Time to Accelerate" found that:
In the U.K. business optimism is at its highest level in three-and-a-half years
Optimism in North America rose from a strong +42% last quarter (Q2 to Q3 2013) to an even stronger +54%.
The inaugural Southeast Asia survey, 44% of CFOs reported a positive outlook despite worries over the Chinese economy and political uncertainty.
Sustainable and profitable business growth doesn't usually happen by accident. Company's need a playbook for growth that's owned by the CFO. And today, that playbook must leverage the six enabling technologies--Social, Big Data, Mobile, Cloud, Analytics, and The Internet of Things (or, as Oracle president Mark Hurd explains, "The Internet of the People").
On Monday June 9 at 2:00 pm Eastern, CFO.com is hosting a webcast,
"The CFO Playbook on Growth: How CFOs Can Boost Efficiency and Performance with Automation".
“Investing in technology begins with a business metric
driven business case with clear tangible business results expected," says John Lieblang, Affiliate Partner with Waterstone Management Group. "The
progressive CFO has learned how to forge a partnership with the CIO to align
everyone in the 'result value chain' to be accountable for the
business results not just for functional technology.”
