It’s no secret that finance roles in most companies tend to be very siloed roles. Typically, the finance team keeps mostly to themselves. But it doesn’t have to be this way and in this week's episode you'll learn everything there is to know about how to break down corporate silos.
On the latest episode of CFO Weekly, David Burt had some fantastic things to say about how to begin breaking down the silos in your finance team.
First, find time to meet with individual business leaders to better understand their specific problems. Not just for exposure, but because you’re truly trying to add value.
Second, stop viewing certain functions as “support functions.” Whether it’s finance, HR, facilities, legal, or anything else, the language of “support function” relegates those roles and the people in them to a sort of “JV squad” role.
Finally, spend time with your customers. Particularly if you’re a software company, it can be easy to hide behind reports and figures, but if you don't spend time with your customers, you don't get to know them.
