Digitalist Magazine interviewed CFOs on top trends they expect to see in financial management in 2019. Here are three interesting predictions:
It’s a global conversation currently. In the world of financial management, it’s about how to synergise teams to use data-informed insights to action digital transformation in-line with a business’s overarching strategy. It’s also about using data to transform the customer experience, and to predict internal and external influences that could affect a company in the future, in order to influence decision-making now. Plus, with the great data debate there comes an increased focus on data security and cybersecurity.
CFO Todd McEhhatton suggests that the integration of technology is a must to differentiate businesses from their competition. He sees a crucial part of financial management being “creative thinking and calculated risk-taking to lead organisations through digital transformation journeys”. The prediction of risk is imperative for financial management teams. Another big part of the digitisation process is the effective upskilling and re-skilling of team members through relevant continuous learning opportunities, such as our online courses.
CFO Michael Coveney suggests that sometime soon there’ll be an emphasis on “collaborative enterprise planning” with sophisticated organisational modelling that shows real-time impacts of real-world events. So, you can see immediately what influence a sudden market downturn is likely to have on your company, for example.
You could be a financial controller, financial forecaster, insurance manager, treasurer, finance officer, credit manager, cash manager, risk manager, financial analyst, accountant, or financial adviser, to name a few.
If you’re a powerhouse of potential with strong skills in people management, plus number crunching and future forecasting, you might be perfectly suited to becoming a financial manager.
