CFO Strategy Services

Insights and advice to drive positive change for your finance function

CFOs constantly look at their business and consider major operational, financial and service delivery shifts within the organization. Establishing a vision and plan to transform the future of your finance organization is critical to driving long-term organization success.

A multitude of options are often on the table, from centralizing, decentralizing, regionalizing and outsourcing key functions within the finance department to moving to a shared service model. However, as these decisions come with a change in risk, independent and objective advice is often a key factor in effectively managing and weighing risk against the financial and nonfinancial benefits of strategic change.

Change is often difficult for organizations, but it is a necessary mechanism for growth and allows companies to take advantage of strategic opportunities and adjust to economic factors. Companies come to RSM Canada for help when evaluating the merits of potential operational changes, including:

  • Lowering costs to become more operationally efficient
  • Providing better service to customers on an on-demand basis
  • Making adjustments to the application architecture to provide necessary data and automation in a timely manner
  • Freeing up working capital to move to other areas of the business
  • Aligning internal personnel to manage the business

We help you assign a business case and a risk profile to help make calculated decisions and estimate the impact on the organization as the organization connects its strategy with its vision.
