View this page in: Türkçe In today's complex environment, finance executives need to balance four main objectives:
  • Creation, maintenance and protection of value for their organisation
  • Operational excellence through efficient and effective processes and controls
  • Identification, anticipation and mitigation of risks to the organisation
  • Development and maintenance of governance and reporting systems in support of the other three objectives
