From Firefighting to Foresight: Navigating the Paradox of Efficiency in the Finance Department

I recently came across this quote in a Sage advert:

“I went from finance fire-fighter to financial foresight-er.”

Sage LinkedIn Post

It got me thinking about all the times I’ve worked with a stressed-out Finance department and how they’re often crying out for help but with seemingly no time to help themselves.

A story as old as time, we need to find efficiencies because we’re always in fire-fighting mode but because we’re always in fire-fighting mode we don’t have time to find efficiencies.

This sometimes this even leads to demonstrations getting cancelled or re-arranged.

What’s the best way to deal with this conundrum?
