Leading in Today's Rapidly Changing Business Environment: How CFOs Can Identify the Right Balance Between Risk & Reward

Program Details:

Given the rapid pace of change due to digital innovations, the number and types of business risks that can impact enterprise strategy have increased exponentially over the past decade. Given their leadership roles in setting and executing strategy, as well as managing risk and finance, CFOs are well positioned to help ensure that risks to the business are identified, managed and integrated into the enterprise growth strategy.

Whether it be entering a new industry or new markets, creating new products or services, targeting new customers, forming strategic alliances, changing distribution models or any other potential innovation options, CFOs must implement an enterprise risk management process to ensure that they strike the right balance between risk and return.

Member Focus: CFO Alliance Members will gather to discuss and share best practices and insights on how they tackle innovation-related risks, how they approach developing enterprise risk management processes and how they monitor and assess their impact to the top line, bottom line, and shareholder value.

  • Given the ever-expanding role and visibility of the CFO, finance leaders and their teams are in a unique position to help create a transparent, consistent culture of security throughout an enterprise by emphasizing its importance to the top line, the bottom line, and to shareholder value. Trust in the technology-driven economy is mandatory. Trust between CFOs and C-Suite leaders, employees and customers is an important and fruitful place to start. This STF Report, created by CFOs, for CFOs, provides you with a comprehensive start down
    this path. However, given the increasing speed of innovation and the way that technology and the world is always changing, we, as finance leaders, must be agile and able to pivot at any moment.
