As the UK’s leading demand origination firm for the consulting marketplace, INCo is constantly speaking with the most senior people in finance functions of the FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and other enterprise organisations.
INCo’s Consulting Services Director Iain Macleod has this insight into the issues that may well have CFO’s turning to consulting firms for aid this year.
“Key topics on the agenda for finance in 2012 are strongly influenced by the demands of the post-crisis economic environment. Owing to the currently higher levels of uncertainty, it is increasingly seen as essential to strengthen analytical and decision support mechanisms and capabilities. Planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting are high on the agenda of a large number of firms this year. Almost all the companies INCo has spoken to are planning some form of investment in this kind of technology and transformation in 2012.”
