CFO Edge Experience – November 2017

Strategy in the Age of Superabundant Capital

Australia’s Leading CFOs have traditionally been strong at executing transformation projects anchored in long-term planning and continual improvement. But the skillful allocation of financial capital is no longer a source of sustained competitive advantage.

Financial capital is no longer a scarce resource. As a result, the skillful allocation of financial capital is a lesser source of sustained competitive advantage. The assets that are in short supply at most companies are the skills and capabilities required to translate good growth ideas into successful new products, services, and businesses.

In 2017 our team of analysts interviewed 650 CFOs. The results highlighted technology at the core of achieving above-market growth.
CFOs are taking an active role in how software is developed and are making investments in building world-class software development practices.

What are Digital Ecosystems? How do you create and measure a platform strategy that counts the community and the resources of its members
as the most critical asset?

Strategy in the Age of Superabundant Capital shifts from controlling, to orchestrating resources, from optimising internal processes to facilitating external interactions, and from increasing customer value to maximising ecosystem value.

INVESTING

Double down on existing
high-growth activities.

CREATING

Double CFOs lead and build value
by designing and deploying new
products, services, or business models.

PERFORMING

Successfully implement Intelligent
Process Automation. Optimise core commercial capabilities in sales, marketing, pricing, and customer experience.

Please note that this is not a conference or a tradeshow.
This is a private gathering for a selective group of CFOs and Financial Leaders. Access to any Edge Experience is dependent upon qualification.

“All the presentations have had quite a different approach. I found the presenters quite generous in their storytelling about what they do and what challenges they face which is always good for reflection”

Finance Executive Director – Monash University


“Diversity of industries, size of organizations, breadth of challenges that are being addressed by CFOs is covered throughout the whole event. That was best illustrated through the roundtable…sharing their challenges. It was clear to us there was a common thread, regardless of industry and sizeable organization and that’s key in terms of understanding our core target market.”
