As finance functions across the globe progress their transformation journeys from data stewardship to value creation and decision support, the need for the agile finance function has emerged. Accelerating the transformation of finance teams and enhancing the delivery of value to the business, agility offers finance functions a path toward sustained transformation, continuous improvement, tailored solutions, and a collaborative, inclusive culture.
