CFOs lack the necessary analytical skill required by the digitalisation of their work

CFOs should deepen their knowledge of digital technology and its application for finance function, according to a Deloitte survey of 30 global finance executives.

The survey found that many of the executives feel that they lack the analytical skills set which will be a crucial component of their work in the coming five years. While finance professionals will increasingly need to analyse and interpret information quicker, businesses will need to ensure they bring in talent with the right analytical and strategic skills.
