The world is changing, and so is the role of finance in both the private and public sectors. Technical competence remains necessary for success but it is no longer sufficient in a world when organisations face fresh challenges. In the private sector these come from the emergence of economies, while in the public sector they come from a combination of fiscal consolidation and rising demand.
This publication shows how you can enhance your impact by working in partnership with other professional disciplines and decision makers. Only by developing commercial acumen and behavioural skills can the finance professional survive in the tough new world. While the traditional financial roles continue to have their place, these have to be achieved through partnership rather than confrontation. Your organisation will value you as an essential partner in its success. This ambition may not be easy to achieve.
This guide also deals with the common pitfalls encountered when developing a business partnering role as well as the subtleties that must be recognised in transferring a best practice from the private to public sector.
This publication is available in hard copy and online.
