The new CFO mandate

What does the future hold for CFOs? To explore that question, Ankur Agrawal, a partner in McKinsey & Co.’s New York office, discusses a recent survey report about the state of finance that he co-authored. The survey of CFOs and other C-suite executives found that while the CFO role is growing rapidly and finance chiefs are leading transformational change, there is still a perception gap between finance and the rest of the company.

  • How the CFO role is evolving and expanding.
  • How future CFOs should be preparing.
