From the Inside Flap
Years ago, CEOs were satisfied with finance chiefs who could manage Wall Street analysts, implement financial controls, manage initial public offerings (IPOs), and communicate with the board of directors in short, CFOs who possessed strong financial skills. That business environment has changed dramatically CFOs are now called on to fill a multitude of roles, including business partner, strategic visionary, communicator, confidant, and creator of value.

A powerful companion guide, The New CFO Financial Leadership Manual includes helpful tools such as an itemized list of the key tasks that a new CFO should complete when first entering the position as well as a checklist of performance measures.
