Tomorrow's finance enterprise

This report seeks to answer the question, what are the key influences shaping the future role of the CFO and tomorrow’s finance enterprise?


This report draws on all of our ongoing CFO-focused research and includes highlights of a 2014 survey of 1,631 ACCA and IMA members around the world.




The research is presented in five areas:

  • Volitility and risk
  • Enterprise strategy
  • Value driven and data centric
  • New technology frontiers
  • People matter - it's always about talent.

Three of the main conclusions encourage CFOs to maximise the use of technology, redesign the process and invest in talent.
