Digitalisation has been rapidly changing the business environment throughout the past years. Today, every organisation should embark on its digital transformation journey and embrace the numerous opportunities that new technologies offer. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic emphasised this even more strongly. However, often, there’s no one to stand up and take the lead in this digital transformation process.
In this white paper, written and published by Vlerick Business School, the CFO is put forward as the one in the ideal position to take up a leading role in this digitalisation journey.
More specifically, 3 main questions are answered throughout this white paper:
- Does the CFO actually get involved in the digital transformation?
- Does the CFO’s involvement accelerate the digitalisation process?
- What do successful digital CFO’s look like and how do they distinguish themselves from other CFO’s?
