With a changing and uncertain business environment, Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) and finance functions must evolve to sit at the heart of decision making within their organizations. 


To help address the changing role of accountants in business, IFAC has been engaging with business and finance leaders to explore how finance functions are transforming from back office support functions to business-facing functions that support and enable decision making across an organization.  

On this page, you will find the latest thinkingresources, articles, and thought leadership from IFAC and its global network on future-ready CFO and finance functions. This includes IFAC's vision for the future finance function, key roles for finance and accounting professionals to remain integral to organizations in the next decade, and an evaluation tool to help guide finance function transformation.
