Partnering for Performance

 
A new role for corporate finance
10/2/2000
The line that separates the finance unit from the more strategy-focused functions of a corporation needs to be breached, assert the authors of Partnering for Performance. As experienced financial executives, they make a compelling case that finance must "give up its old mindset of driving functional excellence" and work more as an ally and a guide to creating shareholder value.
