The role of finance is changing. We see several trends that are shaping the workforce of the future for Finance such as:
A flexible business operating model is required to be able to respond quickly to markets and (new) business. An increasing shift of Finance towards performance management & business partnering are key enablers for steering the business.
Finance is moving into the digital era with increased use of data analytics. Predictive & real-time data is used to create relevant insights. How do you make sure you have the right insights available at any point in time?
Also a change in workforce, a new talent and a fitting culture are required. CFOs are looking for agile people with the right skillset. A modern Finance professional has business acumen and provides insight and decision support.
Because of these trends, there is a need for additional competencies throughout the Finance organisation. The finance function must transform into a function that is ready for the future. Learning new skills that are essential for performing work is important in this respect. In the future finance function, the focus will be on the finance business partner role, in which finance proactively contributes to business performance through true value creation. This requires finance professionals to possess some new skills, such as analytical acumen, digital acumen and collaboration, communication and storytelling, business acumen and finally change management acumen.
We provide the required learning to upskill the Finance professional, taking into account the changing ways in which we are learning, by means a learning platform, tailored for the specific learning needs.
