From geopolitical and regulatory volatility to digital disruption transforming the way entire industries operate, the world of business is rapidly changing. To survive, organizations are evolving their operating models to boost value creation—rather than mere value preservation. In fact, 47 percent of chief executive officers (CEOs) have identified innovating new products, services, and ways of doing business as a strategic growth priority, according to KPMG International's research.1

These organizations are moving away from bureaucratic, functional silos and towards service-driven teams that can be deployed throughout the business as necessary. Beyond these structural changes, the finance function will require new capabilities, skills, and roles to meet the growing pressure to deliver more value and serve as a true partner to the business. Ultimately, finance will need to alter its approach to attracting, retaining, and developing talent to step up to the challenge.
