CFO Foundation - People Process System Assessment Tool

CFO.University isn’t original in using the People, Process and Systems model. The terms “golden triangle”, “business triangle”, even the “eternal triangle” to describe this critical business triumvirate has been in the business lexicon for as long as I can remember. What we believe is unique in our CFO Foundation - People Process System Assessment Tool is the simple and effective way it directs us to the True North for your Accounting, Finance and Treasury (AFT) department. With a simple scoring system applied to key criteria under each foundation area you will create the road map for developing your AFT department’s golden triangle

We have identified the following key criteria for each foundation:

After completing the assessment, we recommend you have the leaders in your departments complete it and compare you results. Discrepancies in your scores make for great discussions and improved understanding.

After these discussions use the summary graph in the assessment to kick off the planning and execution phase of strengthening the foundation of your CFO suite of responsibilities.

Let us know you we can improve the tool to better serve you

As a complement to the CFO Foundation - People Process System Assessment Tool see our Short Form AFT Assessment to further calibrate you CFO development focus and investment.
