Training Overview

Further Creating Modern, Digitally Enabled and Integrated Public Sector Finance Divisions

The back office is now leaning into developing, evolving, and benefitting from data-driven and intelligence-enabled decision-making. With new technologies, processes, and analytic capabilities, the transformation from being a mere cost-centre to a smarter, more integrated function is becoming a dominant strategy for the finance profession.

Through an innovative mix of lecture-style presentations, interactive group exercises, and expert feedback, participants in the Optimising Governance, Reporting & Decision Making online training will learn the fundamentals of adaptive finance function development for a fast-changing economic climate, break down challenges and barriers that keep the back-office fixed on redundant approaches.

Under the guidance of our expert facilitator, attendees will envisage future ways to optimise key aspects of the financial role that meets and maintains compliance at an organisational level.
