Finance executives are increasingly asked to lead process improvement initiatives that reach far beyond the treasury and accounting functions. These projects often involve the implementation of technology; yet research indicates that a majority of technology projects fail to meet objectives. How can you ensure that your key initiatives are successful?
We'll discuss common process improvement pitfalls and how you can avoid them. In addition, attendees will learn how to:
- Align cross functional teams for success;
- Build a collaborative partnership with your IT department;
- Manage the expectations of project sponsors;
- Promote the finance organization as a process improvement resource company-wide.
