Credibility is the foundation for finance’s position in supporting a growth mandate. Credible CFO's position themselves as strategic leaders as they master execution of the existing business and develop visibility of future financial results. The ability to deliver predictability helps the executive and the board of directors formulate and execute strategic plans with greater confidence.

We also explore strategies that CFO's should consider to enhance their own credibility as well as that of their team using tools and technology.
