Finance functions across many organisations are at a key point in their
development. They need to evolve to create the value sought by their customers, both internal and external.
What is the nature of this challenge and how prepared are they for it? What is the relevance to attaining this future state of the discussion in which the finance community is engaged?
In this report ACCA set out, through six hypotheses, a vision of what the
future finance function may look like and lay the foundations for those
who intend to embark and be successful in their journey towards change.
That vision was explored and tested across a series of workshops that
were conducted jointly by PwC and ACCA in Republic of Ireland, the UK,
mainland China, Hong Kong SAR and India, as well as on a survey of
approximately 1,100 members and contacts.
