Global Conductor

Overview:

As a result of our client’s tremendous growth in past 5 years and a recent global Oracle upgrade it became apparent that financial transparency and richer reporting was required across the North America business units. Their key objectives were to enhance business partnering, improve decision making, standardize the sales reporting, analysis and planning processes and enable more centralized business line reporting with smarter analytics. A Project Management Team Lead, with deep functional and system expertise, was needed to supplement the client’s PMO and lead the North America Finance Team in their process re-engineering effort.

Our Approach:
Using our project management and organizational design capabilities, along with functional expertise, we were able to assist our client in the evaluation of their organizational readiness, their internal resources and skill gaps and provide transition recommendations, project staff and expertise as required to transform the organization into a more mature organization.

Our team provided support and leadership to complete the transition by utilizing our key tools and methods in regards to best practices and value realization to support a successful finance transformation and organizational change initiative.
