Course Overview

Does your Finance team feel more like a ‘function’ than a value-adding, forward-looking group? Could they more proactively drive the business towards success and provide genuine, commercial support?

Finance professionals need to be integrated within the business rather than working alongside it. Being a strong finance business partner means having the right skills, the relevant tools and the appropriate behaviours to do so.

Our Finance Business Partnering course provides the foundations and pillars to build these, providing practical resources and techniques to use and develop in the workplace.

Course Content

Through our pre-course research with your relevant stakeholders, we will adapt the course content to focus on the key aspects of business partnering that will result in the greatest impacts for your specific people and your own organisation. Please contact us to discuss our approach to this. The content areas below are examples of typical areas included within this course.

  • Developing commercial insight: the nine factors essential for commercial acumen.
  • Building strategic thinking: the key principles that are critical for moving your team and business towards top-level success and the strategic responses to unforeseen threats and challenges.
  • Growing influencing skills: how to understand and appeal to others and to treat them as they wish to be treated.
  • Passion, attitude and enthusiasm: looking inwardly, what is driving you and how does your role link to these core elements?
  • Growing even more effective communication skills: finance business partners need to communicate in a vast number of ways to people outside of finance. How to adapt and improve communication techniques for each communication method.
