“Agility” has been the watchword of the ongoing crisis. Whatever industry or size of business, CFOs have had to pivot their organisations, processes and systems ‘in the moment’ to stay ahead of the most demanding accounting challenges faced for several generations. For example, the recoverability and impairment of assets, credit losses, satisfying ‘going concern’ considerations and audit, while at the same time managing a virtual close, changing information needs and maintaining appropriate motivation and financial controls with the workforce scattered to all four corners of the earth!
So the crucial question is, how does a CFO pull all of these strands together to form a coherent and agile response?
In this 30 minute webinar Gary Simon, CEO, FSN and Leader of the Modern Finance Forum discusses this vital question with Philippa Lawrence, Chief Accounting Officer, Workday a publicly listed NYSE company and a leader in Cloud ERP applications. Philippa was previously at Google, Katerra and Brocade. She shares her experiences of leading Workday’s finance function through the crisis and how she is preparing for the future of this leading global company by enabling an agile modern finance function.
