The function of finance has evolved. The old way meant intensively gathering and auditing historical data, with limited success of matching budgets and too much effort managing cash flow. Now, finance means using modern automated systems to manage by exception and be advocates for other departments. Technical accounting and finance training needs to now mix with systems know-how. Still, it should also include soft skills to build relationships and broaden operational experience. Finance staff can then partner across the business on a part-time basis, turning the finance function around from looking backward to looking forward and from bean counter to strategic advisor.
