Time is the most coveted resource for today’s finance leaders in financial services.
As a finance leader, you need to find ways to get away from the day-to-day accounting tasks and create time for strategic executive priorities. Recent surveys show that, on average, finance leaders set a goal of spending 50% of their time working on strategy. Yet, the reality is that they spend their days consumed by routine accounting work and protecting the organization against risks.
Lacking time to focus on the big picture, 34% of executives make important decisions either reactively (9%) or after putting it off (25%) until the decision can wait no longer.
