This episode Planning Ace CFO Dev Ahuja brings some perspective on the role finance professionals play in finance transformation. CFO Ahuja shared insights into the structure of his finance organization at Novelis. Despite being well-established, the organization needed a renewed focus on the role of finance in driving decisions and adding value.
Meanwhile, one of the key topics our cohost Brett Knowles drills down on this episode is the difference between complicated and complex problems. While complicated problems can be solved with the right formulas or spreadsheets, complex problems require more. They demand strong interpersonal relationships and effective communication. It’s not just about having the right tools or processes, but also about having the right people who can use these tools effectively.
In addition the episode features planning insights and commentary from Appfire CFO Alex Triplett and CFO Rick Rosenthal of Clara Analytics.
