Recognizing that traditional accounting and financial conventions may no longer provide the CFO with adequate armoury to face the challenges of the electronic environment, this work examines how CFOs must reposition themselves to operate effectively in the 21st century. Picking up where "CFO: Architect of the Corporation's Future" left off, this book provides models and techniques to help corporations prosper in the 21st century. Featuring interviews at the start of each chapter from some of the world's leading CFOs - including Clayton Daly from Procter & Gamble, Tom Meredith from Dell Computers, and John Coombe from Glaxo Wellcome - eCFO draws on their experience to address the key issues they face in the new business environment.
