The Challenges Controllers Face in Changing Times: Understanding Their Evolving Roles and Strategic Partnership

Thursday, July 23, 2020, 8:00 PM - 9:15 PM

The turbulent ever-changing and technology driven world of business requires changing and evolving roles for controllers. The focus is currently more on the soft side of business, rather than accounting and reporting. It is more about people pleasing, than pencil pushing. Studies have shown the controllers who want to rise in the ranks to CFO must learn to put down their pencils and master the soft skills.
Controllers must become Strategic Partners, Value Adding Decision Makers, Providers of Solutions and Managers of Change. It is more a matter of running the company with the numbers, rather than by the numbers.
This webinar looks at the evolving roles for controllers in the current turbulent business world. It bends the arch away from the recording and reporting of the past and looks to the future for creating of relationships and effective leadership.
Our current business environment is chaotic and constantly changing due mainly to technology and other prevailing forces. Controllers are often too heavily focused on “numbers” and running the company by the numbers rather than with the numbers. Those seeking to become effective Controllers must move away from “pencil pushing” and focus more on relationships and “people pleasing”. This session focuses on the soft side of business and how Controllers can effectively indulge in strategic partnership rather than be mere super accountants as many that are elevated to Controller positions from lesser finance or accounting positions do.
