CFO Insights — Why globalization demands (C)hief (F)rontier (O)fficers

Published on: Apr 24, 2014

As organizations move into a new era of globalization, they face ever more complex dynamics and decisions. One result is that the role of the chief financial officer is shifting in many companies, to a focus on making global initiatives succeed.

Many CFOs are stepping up to manage a broader set of business issues than they’ve faced at home or in core markets. But, as leading the charge on globalization initiatives becomes an expected part of the CFO’s scope, not all are equipped to take on the new responsibilities.

This issue of CFO Insights looks at how financial executives may need to hone their approaches to financing, investment, operations, and valuation and adopt a new mind-set to meet global challenges.
