CFOs control the fortunes of the company, while supply chains make the fortunes of the company. Their jobs are closely intertwined.

Better the supply chain mastery within the company, the better the company’s fortunes. That is why a higher level of supply chain sophistication is always more profitable – so long as the company can cope with the sophistication.

Essence of taking control is asking good questions. When it comes to key financial metrics such as cash-to-cash cycles, most CFOs are already in the driving seat.

Yet, somewhere between the financial metrics, and operational KPIs, they lose traction and sometimes credibility in front of the board.

  • Why does this happen?
  •  What are some of the better questions to ask?

The table below lists some of the key questions in the first column. The answers will help CFOs decide where to focus the energies of their finance teams and the entire organisation.

What is the reason for the GAP?

How can CFOs and finance professionals add even more strategic value to their corporations?

Let us look at the big picture.

What Sets CFOs Apart?

There is something that sets you apart from your peers.

As per a rough estimate, out of 150 personnel who enter as finance professionals only one makes it to the apex.

Functional excellence, dedication to your craft and a strategic mind-set sets you apart from the others. It is not an easy journey. In fact quite the contrary.  

But, those who reach lofty heights rarely rest on their laurels for too long.  You know that nothing stands still for too long.

There is, however, an ironical conundrum.  What got you here, will rarely take you much further.



Functional excellence is not sufficient. Even strategic thinking is not. If you want more evidence of this, read pages 14-16 in this extract.

Cross-functional integration separates those who are favoured by the boards. Supply Chain 3.0 matters to CFOs. Here is why.
