Description

The recent economy has placed unprecedented pressure on businesses. Throughout these difficult times and beyond, CFOs have been under increased pressure to evaluate the performance of their Finance function. Finance playing a key role in resolving many of the issues, the function itself has been expected to lead by example and ensure that they are as efficient, effective and as value creating as every other part of the business.

As the global economy shows signs of recovery, businesses are turning their attention once again to pursuing new market opportunities in order to reestablish growth, & focus on Growth. CFOs have to understand businesses and also need to look at individual elements of Finance & develop a finance function that creates value and manages business performance, while taking a holistic view of the entire Finance operating model and its overall processes and structure to create a balanced approach and reach the ultimate competitive position by improving all of them.

Amidst this interesting backdrop and innovations taking place in the finance function, CII Southern Region organized the 5th Edition of The India Finance Forum on 20th & 21st April 2011, Chennai.
