The world of finance and accounting has changed significantly over the past decade. Digital advances and demands for agile business practices have triggered an evolution of the finance function. As a result, finance professionals are facing new levels of accountability and high expectations. To keep up with progression, it is imperative for finance professionals to understand current trends and step up as a strategic business partner. Similarly, the public sector is a complex and dynamic environment to navigate as a leader due to increasing pressure to achieve more with less. Progressive financial experts and leaders in this environment need to be well informed and have a forward-thinking approach to decision making.
