This course looks at the finance business partner role, and how you can develop to take on this key strategic role in your or you clients' businesses.
What a business needs from finance is evolving. Increasingly, back office functions have become automated and a different role, that of the finance business partner, has emerged.
The finance business partner plays a key strategic role in a business, and, as a result, has the opportunity to become a trusted business advisor. This requires a different set of skills to the traditional finance back office function. You will be expected to be strategic, focusing on the value of the information you provide, and extracting and correlating financial figures to help your business make relevant decisions, which are closely aligned with your strategic outcomes. As a finance business partner, you need: to have credibility and influence within the management team, to be articulate and proactive in your approach and, most importantly, to have a thorough understanding of where your business can create value.
Upon satisfactory completion of this activity you will be able to:
• Use financial information to influence and shape outcomes as a core part of the management decision team.
• Interpret the internal and external environment so that both financial and strategic targets can be achieved.
• Understand how best to implement a successful finance business partner approach that results in an effective and respected finance business partner role.
This course will arms you with the knowledge, skills, traits needed to deliver maximum value to be an effective finance business partner.
