Achieving business resilience amid COVID-19 | Agile Finance Reimagined

Sep 25, 2020 · 1 min read

No crisis has been as challenging in recent memory as the COVID-19 pandemic, severely testing the strength of corporations and the business guidelines under which they operate. For CFOs and finance leaders, it has accelerated the need to create agile, resilient organizations with higher levels of digitization and to better equip their finance teams to deal with today’s rapid pace of change.

To support this effort, the Association partnered with Oracle to launch Agile Finance Reimagined, a five-part webcast and white paper series offering CFOs and their finance teams practical advice on how to increase resiliency and growth not just in finance, but also in the lines of business that rely on finance to guide the way forward, including supply chain operations and the customer experience. The series features expert insights from leaders at McKinsey & Company and Oracle, as well as the results of polls conducted during the webcasts on how finance leaders are building financial resiliency within their organizations.
