We have developed a structured development program which can be tailored to individual business needs to help finance professionals to become more complete business managers.

This would involve developing a clear set of success criteria that would include both behavioural and technical capabilities for senior financial managers. It is then followed up with development options aligned to these success criteria. The development options are normally fulfilled using a 70:20:10 development approach.This would involve 70% on the job development, 20% mentoring/coaching/forums and 10% training courses. Not only is this proven to be one of the most effective approaches but is also cost beneficial.

Various research conducted by CIMA, ICAEW, ACCA, Robert Half and Ernst and Young would suggest that the key capabilities of successful CFO’s would include the following.

  • Financial Competence
  • Excellent Communication Skills
  • Leadership Skills
  • Commercial Awareness

Our courses are tailored to each organisations needs to ensure these traits can be developed to the full.

…be more than an accountant!
