CFOs seek new finance and accounting hires who can communicate as well as compute.
If accounting and finance staff don't start thinking more outside of the box, it could be to the detriment of their units and their firms. Some CFOs are leading the charge in recognizing the other skill sets with training programs, enhanced opportunities to work with different business units and encouraging outside education. But clearly more work needs to be done- experienced staff still fall down sharply in leadership abilities while new recruits often think they should be the CFO without any of the experience.
In this Special Report, CFO.com investigates what skills are needed most in accounting and finance now and in the years to come. And some of the findings contrast markedly to CFOs abroad.
