In-House CFO vs. Outsourced CFO

There is no doubt that hiring a full time Chief Financial Officer (CFO) makes complete sense when a business reaches a certain size or an advanced level of complexity in structure. There is also no question that a CFO occupies a crucial role in growing a business’ profitability, especially in the longer term. The decision facing business owners, is when is the right time to bring on a full-time CFO or whether there are benefits to having a part-time or outsourced CFO until a full-time CFO role stacks up financially.

Outsourcing CFO services will give companies all the benefits of having a highly skilled and experienced Chief Financial Officer (CFO) on their team, but at a much-reduced cost.

The value of CFO Profiling

Organisations normally engage in developing a robust CFO Profile when they need to recruit, however conducting the same process within your organisation when recruitment is not the focus can have great benefits for aligning business strategy with the individual and team.

How a Board can influence an SMB Business?

A functional Board contributes to the overall productivity of the organisation and staff often look to the Board of Directors for guidance, regulations, support, and the tools and resources to do the work that is expected of them. When a Board is lax or negligent, or does not take care of tasks and responsibilities, it doesn’t take long before staff and the daily operations of the organisation are affected.

What are you projecting – The Power of Feedback and Perceptions

Ever been given feedback that you disagree with? What was your response? If you are like most, then your response was probably along the lines of: Anger; “Where does he/she get off telling me that.” Denial; “That’s not how it happened.” Deflection; “He/she should concentrate on their own problems.” Righteousness; “What would he/she know? I know more about this than them.”
