Jeremy Hope says it’s time to redefine the role of CFOs in today’s organizations, liberating them from ineffective number-crunching responsibilities and enabling them to focus on helping managers improve performance. Grounded in extensive research, Reinventing the CFO outlines seven critical roles—from streamlining redundant processes to regulating risk to identifying a few key measures—that CFOs must take on in order to successfully transform the finance operation.
Challenging many of the finance field’s accepted practices and systems, this bold book revolutionizes the role of financial managers and frees them to make smart, ethical, strategic decisions that add real value to the firm.

Jeremy Hope's well-written and well-documented proposals deserve careful reading by every financial executive. It is no news that the job of the Chief Financial Officer is changing. However, he points out, few CFOs understand or accept the steps they should take to prepare themselves for the demands of a new role. Hope explains what they need to do clearly and concisely, mincing no words about the troubled state of the CFO profession today. We recommend this book to CFOs and other financial professionals who want to become strategic partners in their organizations.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
