S403: Spring Symposium: CFO Panel Discussion — Future Proofing the Office of the Association/Non-profit CFO
According to the 2020 Global CEO Survey conducted by PwC, a shocking 40 percent of respondent CEOs believe their companies will no longer be economically viable after ten years if they continue with their current strategies. A stark reminder that in this rapidly advancing digital age, organizations must strive for change and transformation if they wish to survive the coming decade. The survey suggests that a multi-dimensional approach is required; one that focuses on automation and innovation while rethinking and refining business models, operations, and customer experiences. Clearly, only those who recognize their need to evolve and adapt to external factors will be able to maintain their vitality in the long run.
“Future proofing the office of the CFO” recognizes the reality that the role of the CFO has drastically evolved over the years, and will continue to do so in the future. CFOs are now seen as the CEO’s strategic business partner, equipped with an understanding not only of the company’s budget but also the economics of trends occurring in their field, giving them unique insight and enabling them to create business value and fuel transformation.
Today’s CFO is just as much the organization’s Chief Transformation and Risk Officer, as it is evident that their abilities go far beyond merely crunching numbers. With this newfound responsibility bestowed upon them, CFOs have become increasingly important figures in leading their organization towards successful transformations.
