Track B: Evolving Into A True Business Partner: Aligning Finance Operations With Strategy & Culture

A session at 15th Annual Asian Shared Services and Outsourcing Week

Thursday 6th September, 2012

11:30am to 12:05pm (SMT)

In recent years the finance function has moved away from its traditional focus on reducing costs and improving efficiency, increasingly looking towards value creation as its prime goal. SSOs can provide a means to innovate, increase productivity/revenues and renew top-line growth but before you climb the value chain, it is vital to align with the company culture, vision and values to ensure your finance operations are tailored to the needs of your business:

•Creating an agile structure to compliment your geographic footprint
•Working alongside the business to incorporate their needs into your end to end vision
•Involving and enthusing the team with the right values and business partnering attitudes
•Dealing with M&A integration issues through solid change management strategies
