Finance Team
Skills Assessment

A Comprehensive Overview of Your Team's Competencies

Our skills assessment process provides a rich, comprehensive view of your team’s strengths and weaknesses. By individually examining the key components of your finance function, we help you understand the areas your team excels in and the ones they need to improve. Once the assessments are completed, we aggregate the results, providing you with a thorough understanding of your team’s capabilities.

The Skills Assessment Competency Frameworks

Our finance team skills assessment methodology has been designed in collaboration with leading CFOs to provide focused coverage across the whole finance team. We have five individual competency frameworks covering Finance Leaders, Financial Controllership (technical, FinOps and controller roles), FP&A, Business Partnering, and Finance Transformation.

The frameworks are broken down into nine competencies each containing five key skills, with an assessment against four levels of expertise.

Completion of the skills assessment provides both individualized reports and aggregated summaries identifying key skills gaps compared with industry benchmarks and your future finance vision.

Our frameworks and ratings narrative can also be incorporated into your recruitment, performance management, career development and retention strategies. Company-branded and tailored versions can be created for you upon request, which can then be integrated into your platform.
