Now more than ever, every part of a business touches the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and their team. The most successful have evolved over time to embrace strategy, broadening their scope beyond a strict cost agenda. Throw a deal into the mix and a job renowned for being tough becomes even more challenging.
A key challenge for any finance function is to deliver what’s expected whilst also taking on additional roles. Leaders must ensure that the function delivers maximum deal value while keeping an eye on business as usual (BAU) requirements.
It’s inevitable that the CFO and senior members of a finance team will be involved at each stage of a deal cycle. But in practice how many times in their career is a CFO likely to be involved in a deal? Even those with experience of a few deals will inevitably feel they are facing a new challenge without strong specialist deal experience within their teams to call on.
