As we navigate the end of 2022, financial controllers are looking ahead to the new year in preparation for trends and challenges that will shape the controllership and finance functions.
The role of financial controllers has become more robust than ever before and being able to continuously adapt amidst new challenges is critical for the success of the entire enterprise. Accounting departments will be tasked with reevaluating responsibilities for team members to ensure all skills are put to use, therefore focusing a large effort on talent retention.
Other important focuses for financial controllers include harnessing the power of data analytics, evaluating technologies that provide real-time data analysis, translating data into actionable plans, and adjusting to new practices to strengthen existing processes.
In this Argyle: Financial Controller Leadership Forum, you will learn:
Financial controllers play a clear role within the finance function and are experts in all core processes including financial close, planning, reporting, and accounting. However, these finance gurus must also possess a strong intellect in technology, especially as traditional finance and accounting operations are being automated or shifted to cloud based. Advanced technologies help financial controllers analyze data in real time which in turn increases performance and reduces human error, so it is imperative for organizations to have the right tools and technologies in place.

In today’s highly complex business environment, financial controllers are expected to do more with less, to run leaner while becoming more effective than ever. Technology, specifically accounting automation technologies, are no longer nice to have but imperative to stay competitive and effectively utilize resources amidst new challenges in 2023 and beyond.
So, how can financial controllers apply these technologies within their own organization to be well positioned to thrive in a time of unprecedented change?

Organizations have proven to be resilient, and employees continue to work successfully from home, but how are finance teams managing a distributed workforce? Although remote teams have maintained, if not increased, productivity while embracing new technologies, a distributed accounting workforce can potentially hinder the role of financial controllers. This is mostly due to lack of team building, communication, collaboration, and a sense of togetherness by working remote, making it critical for finance teams to address these concerns.
