Podcast Finance Journey
Finance functions are facing a number of potentially disruptive challenges led by technological innovations, changing business models and evolving consumer expectations. Based on a series of interactive workshops and interviews with leading finance professionals around the world, as well as through an online survey of over a 1,000 ACCA members and PwC contacts, we have set out in a new report what we consider to be a possible vision for the future finance organisation, and what we think the journey to get there is.
Part 1: The opportunity for the finance community
This podcast features ACCA’s Jamie Lyon and PwC partner and global head of finance consulting in London, Brian Furness, the two sponsors in this joint research initiative. Together they discuss key insights from the report and top tips for finance leaders embarking on a journey of change.
Part 2: The journey to the future
In the second podcast of this series, PwC specialists Colin Bezant, Fedelma Good and Helen Tuddenham join ACCA's senior insights manager Clive Webb to share their insights for finance teams to successfully embark on a journey of change. These include encouraging people-led solutions, understanding the entire data lifecycle built around a strong digital core, and offering training to finance teams outside of traditional channels, all appear key concepts to focus on in order to deliver effective transformation.
