From Scorekeepers to Business Partners


Leading finance organizations have been expanding from traditional historical reporting and “scorekeeping” functions to a broader role that supports the enterprise with valuable business insights. In most companies today, there is a gap between the role that Finance perceives that it plays in the organization and how the business views finance’s role. And both groups have different views and definitions of what “business partnering” means. The Hackett Group has developed a Business Partnering Model to provide a framework for defining an effective business partner and enabling an organization to assess its effectiveness in the role.
