Overview

You need more than technical competencies

Finance business partnering can make an important contribution to improving decision making and ensuring the sustainable success of business. It also widens the career opportunities for accounting and finance professionals - providing another route to senior management.

Recent CGMA research has identified that today’s finance professionals need more than just the technical skills required to produce accounting and financial information. These professionals also need the ability to lead and influence people within the organization. Much like technical competencies, finance business partnering competencies are most effectively developed through formal learning and on-the-job practice.

What else should you focus on?

This webcast will cover critical finance business partnering competencies such as business acumen, people skills, and leadership skills, which are increasingly expected by employers. Technical skills are essential but a key aspect of being an effective finance partner is to be able to build relationships, demonstrate integrity, create value, and influence outcomes based on technical acumen.

This webcast will assist learners in acquiring a broad understanding of these skills.
