CFO Insights: Charting a new course for controllers in the post-pandemic world

Published on: Apr 26, 2021

Over the past year, many CFOs have had to deal with higher demands and expanded responsibilities thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Across industries, those expanded duties have included leading transformation efforts—both within finance and the overall organization—as well as driving enterprise growth as companies seek to capitalize on post-pandemic opportunities.

That doesn’t mean the job of managing finance has become less important or less time consuming. Instead, as CFOs shift more of their attention to enterprise-wide performance, growth, and business transformation, they are increasingly asking their controllers to elevate their own roles to improve finance operations and deliver timelier information, insights, and automation.

In this issue of CFO Insights, we’ll explore some of the items on the controller's emerging agenda for 2021 and beyond and how controllers can deliver more value to the CFO and the enterprise.
