How AI will transform the CFO’s role

With smarter automation taking over rote tasks and AI improving analytics, finance leaders can become powerful strategic advisers

Perhaps no business function — or C-suite role — offers such fertile ground for automation and AI to help spur growth as finance.

CFOs are uniquely positioned to lead a broader organisational shift into digitisation. They have insight into all business units and can help leaders from every area of the organisation understand the why of finance data, not just the what — ultimately leading to smarter business decisions throughout the enterprise. Here’s how CFOs can lead this change:

  • Set targets for outcomes and benefits

  • Directly involve frontline employees
  • Define your areas of focus across people, processes and performance

  • Put a governance structure in place, both for data and AI overall

  • Prepare the workforce
