Product information


**What is a Digital Transformation Initiative – and – how and why does it apply to you?

In finance and accounting departments, digital tools of the trade are in a perpetual state of being deployed, upgraded, integrated, and adopted. As a CFO, whether you are upgrading your ERP, FPA or other mission-critical software, or in some way are responsible for other departments’ system projects, you and your C-Suite colleagues are responsible for the success (or failure) of these digital transformation initiatives. These initiatives can bring great value to a business (success), or, more frequently, their disruptive nature can result in great cost and losses (failure).

This session is designed to give members of the C-Suite, in particular the CFO, an understanding of how businesses should undertake and govern digital transformation initiatives from the beginning, with an eye on strategy, mitigating inherent risks, assessing and measuring successes, and ensuring that the people most impacted are well equipped for a successful outcome. Our presenters bring unique and deep experience in the management of these initiatives from finance, technology and organizational development backgrounds.
