Why You Should Attend

[Virtual+ Training Course] Lean Finance

The transforming finance function of the future is both lean and effective as well as driving lean concepts across the organisation. With the increasing influence of disruption as well as technology enhancements, finance must transform to valued business partners who contribute to strategically leading their organisations.


The finance function is facing the most challenging combination of circumstances which is requiring a massive re-think of finance processes and staff skills and competencies. There is a pressing need for a lean and agile finance function to replace the traditional number-crunching team that merely records transactions and produces historical reports. The business requires a much more strategic and value adding outcome from the CFO function. Processes must be improved, leading edge lean management accounting tools and techniques must be implemented in order to effectively manage organisational costs. The arms-length finance professional must evolve into the effective business partner that can drive all aspects of the business not only using enhanced soft skills but also powerful 21st century technology.

Begin your transformational journey with this world class workshop.
