Finance is an underappreciated function when it comes to team management. As a data hub for reporting, along with forecasting capabilities, finance earns a seat at the table when it comes to goal-setting and performance analysis. This cross-functional collaboration supports three characteristics of great teams:
Alignment. The definition of success is known and shared, with buy-in driven by the credibility of the path forward
Engagement. The team marches down the path, and the current status is known and shared (transparency is key for engagement; share the data!)
Accountability. Variances are known and shared, with incentives structured to celebrate success.
Give those finance nerds a chance. They help in supporting strong team cultures across every part of the organization.
