  12. 12. Page 12 Is the future of finance new technology or new people? I think the most important thing for a senior executive of this company – the CEO and myself – is to explore, ‘What is the future for the business?’ Where do we want the company to be in five years’ time? … Part of our job as an agency is to find creative ideas. So we need to know what the future is. I recently met with two people and we had a discussion about virtual reality. In another meeting we were talking about mobility. These are the things a CFO need to look at and discuss.“ Chris Chen COO & CFO, DDB Greater China “

  21. 21. Page 21 Is the future of finance new technology or new people? The vision that we’ve created is called ‘SMART Finance.’ This means the need to think Strategically, and Mine data for insights. With an understanding beyond numbers, we are then in a better position to Analyze and Advise our business partners in terms of their performance and their utilization of Resources. This way, we can help to facilitate the formulation and refinement of the business strategies of the bank, and optimize the allocation of resources to these strategies. Most importantly, we need to groom Talent to make all these SMART things – strategy, mining data, analysis and resource allocation – happen.” Darren Tan Siew Peng CFO, OCBC Bank “
  22. 22. Page 22 Is the future of finance new technology or new people? Some final thoughts from the front lines… ► Some common mistakes as people pursue EPM initiatives: ► Trying to leverage new technology around the current process and organization ► Short term, “quick-win” focus at the expense of a longer term vision and strategy ► Tools are important, but process and organization is what pays the bills ► …And some “leading practices”: ► The business i.e., CFO needs to own the initiative ► The team needs to understand the big picture while still being able to focus on the details ► An iterative phased approach is almost always better than a big bang ► Understand the vision and roadmap of your technology provider is just as important as understanding your own vision and roadmap
