6 Reasons Why Creating Purpose is the Key to Successful Change

Written by Craig Elvin on Feb 08, 2017

There aren’t many organisations that I have worked with over the last decade from FTSE 100 to SME’s, that aren’t involved in or planning change. Driven by the current geo-political and economic situation, globalisation agendas, technology advances and mergers or acquisitions, modern leaders can’t hide from change.

It was surprising to find that only 20% of both CFOs and CPOs felt the two functions were aligned on communication, processes, reporting, culture and training.

To gain an inside perspective on the issue, we joined forces with our well-connected network to run a senior leadership guest webinar. The event proved to be a great success and provided some valuable insights into how Finance and Procurement can get more aligned on areas such as people, process, technology and communication.
