How Finance Directors Drive Strategy Through Systems
Play • 6 min


What do Finance Directors (FDs) have to do with successful projects in organisations of all sizes? They control the purse strings, but they also control what happens and when. So can you have successful projects without FDs buying into the strategy for your business?

This week I explore this topic in brief. I also ask you to tell me what you love and what you hate about Excel and ask, is it all over your business?



"how vital it is to plan, 1, 2, 3 or possibly 5 years in advance for your systems and how pivotal a role the FD plays in that discussion" [RB]

"Excel. Like it or loathe it, it’s there in our organisations and it plays a large part in both finance and general administration processes for all of our departments" [RB]

"Systems get to end of life and need to be replaced, it’s natural to postpone these activities for as long as possible often due to BAU concerns. So work these into a strategy." [RB]
