Our current business environment is chaotic and constantly changing, mainly due to technology and other prevailing forces. Controllers are often too heavily focused on "numbers" and running the company by the numbers rather than with the numbers. This session focuses on the soft side of the business, and how controllers can become effective as strategic partners rather than mere super accountants as many do that is elevated to controller positions from lesser finance or accounting positions.
This webinar looks at the changing role of controllers in the current turbulent business world. It bends the arch away from the recording and reporting of the past and looks to the future and the creating of relationships and effective leadership.
