Transforming Finance: A Manufacturing CFO’s Journey to Agile Innovation
Disruptions can upend a plan. But what will it take to elevate the finance function to new heights? This was the big question driving Prophix’s recent Finance Leaders Survey. Hear from Denise Feece, COO/CFO at Sequel Wire, and Melissa Harrell Frey, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Prophix, as they reflect on how the finance function is evolving and adapting to meet current challenges – and how finance leaders are preparing for whatever comes next.
Join in the discussion, which will include an overview of survey results from more than 700 finance leaders, best practices for strategic financial planning and analysis, and seven steps to process evolution. Learn how to spark your own financial transformation to help your company be ready to react when, not if, disruption happens.
