Tracking financial leadership’s transition from corporate number-cruncher to strategic storyteller in South Africa
The CFO’s role and responsibilities have shifted significantly in response to recent and ongoing disruption. Our CFO 3.0 research report, published in mid-2020, announced the rise of digitally savvy senior financial decision-makers who use advanced tools and technologies to combat the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, over one year on, more and more finance leaders in South Africa are riding the tech wave through uncertain economic currents.
Sage interviewed 313 senior finance professionals from businesses with 50 to 5,000 employees during August 2021 to help finance leaders better understand the key shifts in their roles and responsibilities – and how their peers are navigating the changing landscape.
The aim of this research is to provide senior financial decision-makers and CFOs with strategic and relevant insights that support their role reinvention as they adjust to a digitised working world.
