The ability to adapt to the unexpected quickly and seamlessly is a major priority for today’s financial executives. In order to adjust course, decision makers must have a top-down perspective that makes it easy to account for every variable and hence be nimble and flexible. 
   That is one of the findings of a CFO survey where financial executives of several large and mid-sized companies were asked of their top priorities for 2018. 
   Aside from being flexible, companies are faced with a situation whereby upstart competitors and market forces are forcing them to cut costs and increase profits at the same time. 
Data & automation
Treating data like a mission-critical asset is a priority for almost all the CFOs surveyed. Forward-thinking CFOs understand that automation is a way to speed up workflows while reducing errors. Finding ways to introduce automation that is both effective and accessible is a 2018 priority that lays a foundation for the future of accounting.
