THE DNA of the digital finance leader

30 April 2021

How do you develop a digital transformation strategy for the finance function and what are the main characteristics of a digital finance leader?


Cloud computing, robotics, blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, … The rapid technological evolution is irrevocably changing our lives and strongly influencing our way of working. The COVID-19 crisis and the subsequent mandatory teleworking period have only added to the importance of digitisation in business. For many CFO’s, the crisis has been a wake-up call to start investing in the digitalisation of their department if they wish to be ‘fit for the purpose’ and ‘fit for the future’.

This digital journey, however, goes beyond simply tackling technological aspects. Finance leaders must reinvent themselves and their department on an organisational and cultural level, too.

In order to successfully embark on this digitalisation journey, the Centre for Financial Leadership & Digital Transformation has created a white paper on the influence of digitalisation on the finance function. It discusses how to design a digital transformation strategy along with the 9 must-have characteristics of a true digital finance leader.
