The role of the finance function in the company is ideally that of partner of choice. Senior management trusts in an expertise that goes far beyond the world of numbers.
Finance has a fixed place at the negotiating table and is involved in all important decisions through active business partnering. Its members provide relevant information, identify opportunities & risks and are oriented towards the future.
The organisation sees the added value of the function and confidently follows its recommendations and processes. The know-what and know-how enables staff to easily move to other functions and thus develop further.
Decisions that were previously prepared are now made and taken responsibility for.
Active business partnering leads to more success for the company and also individually for the people in the finance department.
