Once perceived as risk-averse cost gatekeepers in charge of financial reporting and forecasting, today’s CFOs are critical to driving digital transformation and growth. Ongoing market uncertainty has only accented this trend the past few years. To explore the evolving role of the CFO and the internal tensions and opportunities that come with this transition, Anaplan, in partnership with Deloitte, commissioned The Harris Poll to survey more than 700 CFOs and senior departmental leaders across the U.S., UK, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and Singapore. Today, we’ve released the findings and a selection of key insights in a new research report: Architects of business change: Awakening the potential of the modern CFO.
