The war for talent has grown exponentially, and the financial landscape is inevitably reshaped by new-age digital capabilities. To help finance professionals gear competency and lead the future of finance, IIM Lucknow and Miles have entered into an association to launch an exciting and groundbreaking executive education programme in Digital Finance Transformation. Though the course is spread over 9 months, the course content is designed by IIM experts and industry leaders to make finance leaders stand out in their functions and decisions leading to value creation in the finance and business domain.
As strategy defines business success, the finance transformation course empowers finance leaders to build upending finance strategies to enhance customer experience, and intelligent decisions, deliver differentiated products and services, boost the supply chain, and fire-up innovative leadership in the marketplace. According to a PwC report, only 63% of CFO and finance leaders have realized the importance of digital capabilities and their value in enhancing finance functions, but this bolstering digital transformation program challenges the traditional, repetitive, and time-consuming finance processes to enable finance leaders to think bigger and outside the box.
Pandemic is one such phenomenon that triggered companies about the need for agility and analytical speed, where managers heavily invested in new-age technologies and tools to ensure the remote operations, transactions, and networks remain intact at the organizational level.
