Topic: Preparing for Change in 2023 and Beyond
Speaker: Lisa Husken, Value Engineer, Kyriba
2023 promises to be another challenging year for treasurers with economic and geo-political uncertainty. To ensure financial resiliency, CFOs are putting more pressure on treasurers to become a more reliable strategic partner. In this session, we will explore some of the key topics and challenges for 2023, as well as some of the most recent advancements in technology that can be leveraged to support these initiatives. This technology comes with a price tag that must pass internal budget constraints. In order to get executive approval for the technology, conducting an in-depth analysis of current versus future state inclusive of the value of the future state to upper management is required. This session will examine the key value components that must be considered in a business case that will achieve the buy in as well as overcoming budget obstacles.
