The Controller and CFO In The Organization Of The Future

Description

This program recognizes that the controller must have current technical knowledge of financial subjects such as cash and debt management, planning, the latest accounting department efficiency issues, and new oversight and control concepts. But, the controller must also have the people management skills needed to hire the best people for the department, correct and coach in a successful fashion, and lead the department to the point where it is a well-oiled machine. The job of the controller is very challenging, and that is why this course has included a third leg to the stool that includes personal tips on individual efficiency, delegation, and working within the corporate politics of the organization. This course makes a clear and important distinction between the older-style organization similar to GM, and the newer organizations like Google or Apple. As the course moves through the subjects, constant contrast is made between how things are done in the modern and the older style organization.
