Scottish FAN Adding Value, Supporting Business Management


Local government finance services are undergoing transformation and adapting to client needs. The requirement to ensure that managers at all levels receive appropriate financial information and advice which ‘adds value’ is paramount as organisations and managers respond to funding restrictions and service demand changes. This event looked at how, by developing a fact based understanding of a service’s use of resources, finance staff can maximise their influence and support for business management decisions.

The materials were presented in four sessions:

  • Business Partner Role - Overview
  • Knowing the Service
  • Applying Service Knowledge – Real Life Illustration
  • Applying Service Knowledge – Practical Workshops
