Finance Organizational Capabilities ListWhat are the core finance organizational capabilities of a world-class accounting and finance function?  From a nomenclature point of view, what we are referring to here is not the business architecture related business capabilities model, but more of the accounting and finance organizational capabilities, as in the functional and structural components. (Finance business capabilities model builds on similar constructs and concepts, but a capability map is more of an abstract decomposition of the underlying capabilities into granular entities.)

Today, the demands on the accounting and finance functions have increased tremendously. The CFO role has evolved and the accounting and finance functions followed suit.  The C-suite relies on accounting and finance for keeping a pulse on the business vitals, deployment of capital, prudent management of cash and assets, agile support for corporate actions and special situations, and financial data for better decision making.

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
