When Change Is Not a Choice: How Finance Leaders Manage Unexpected Change - Argyle Executive Forum Events When Change Is Not a Choice: How Finance Leaders Manage Unexpected Change - Argyle Executive Forum Events


In an ideal world, executives can choose when and how they plan for significant changes within their companies. Best practices dictate that change management is a significant component of both organizational strategy and structure. With that in place, companies can then plan to ensure that information, resources, and technological infrastructure are in place to execute upcoming changes.

However, organizations must now adapt quickly to circumstances that they cannot always predict, therefore losing that lead time to plan for change. For example, finance and risk teams are now performing their tasks remotely, such as closing the books and managing access to critical systems. Change management is now occurring after many changes have already taken place.

Even when you have sufficient time to prepare, change management entails a detailed understanding of risk. And when your time horizon for change management shrinks from months to days, and is sometimes even retroactive, then change management should be built into risk management as an ongoing rather than a periodic endeavor. Technological advances, including those in cloud-based software and machine learning, are accelerating finance leaders’ efforts to manage change by enabling individuals to perform their tasks, and also by managing risk up front. During this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Collaborate with colleagues throughout your company to create a culture of change management that is proactive rather than reactive,
  • Redefine change management as an essential component of risk management, and
  • Apply advances in technology that improve your company’s understanding of risk and ability to adapt to change.
