The DNA of the finance leader

19 November 2021

How do successful CFOs and finance leaders develop a digital transformation strategy for their finance function of the future and what skills must a truly digital finance leader possess?

To support finance leaders to navigate the opportunities and pitfalls of a finance and accounting technology transformation, the Vlerick Business School’s Centre for Financial Leadership & Digital Transformation, in collaboration with BDO Global, has created a white paper on the influence of digitalisation on the finance function. It discusses how to design a digital transformation strategy along with the 9 must-have characteristics of a true digital finance leader.

In this white paper, you will learn more about:

  • How to formulate and execute a finance and accounting technology transformation
  • The pros and cons of digital technologies & trends that will change the finance function
  • Characteristics of a truly digital finance leader

“The highest-performing finance leaders are those who control and manage the quality of their data.” Ian McBane, Partner, Business Services & Outsourcing


Supporting your finance function of the future

As businesses adapt to remote ways of working and pivoting business models – how might the transformation of your finance function support the continued success of your business? 

Successful finance leaders need to rethink their approach to the component parts of their function – viewed through the lens of transformative change and the need to support stakeholders, investors and management in new ways.
