In the wake of rapid disruption, CEO’s & CFO’s are looking to the finance function to take on a considerably broader and deeper set of strategic responsibilities than ever before.

Leading finance organizations have developed an agenda to deal with disruption. And with a clear line of sight to the impact of disruption on both the business model and the operating model, the CFO has the chance to turn disruptors into opportunities for competitive advantage and growth.
