Over the last 4-5 years, there has been a significant increase in accounting and finance practitioners marketing themselves as part-time/interim/fractional/outsourced CFOs, and I am curious as to what some of you, as CFOs, controllers, or otherwise think of this trend. Is...

We are currently organized by functional area but we will be moving to a weak matrix structure next year. This will obviously have an impact on our budget process and I would appreciate any insights on how or what to plan in a matrix organization. Thanks.

I am starting to look at a financial planning and reporting system that would be a good fit for a small P&C Insurance company. The company writes Homeowners and Auto policies. If anybody has any experience with this I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you, Tony

It seems that no matter how hard I work, and how much I try to contribute as a team player my boss never recognizes my efforts. He often credits others for my work, and is very “defensive” of what he views as “his turf” to learn more about what he...

A $30,000 invoice was accidentally paid 2 periods early and affected other operating expenses for the period (i.e. payroll). I know a loan will probably have to be initiated in order to cover the shortfall, but I was wondering if there was a way to measure how soon the $30k...

Has politics affected your relationship with your CEO (superior)? Eventually, the ideological difference (if any) will rear it's ugly head. be it in strategy, point of view on issues and how to move forward. How did you deal with it!

How is progress monitored? How is success measured and validated? I am curious how different organizations maintain momentum and sustain results.

Let me first say that I really enjoy my job and feel committed to the company I work for and the people I work with. I've been here for a couple of years. About 4 months ago they hired a CFO from hell. The only tool in her employee management toolkit is nastiness. One...
