What does the CFO need from projects?

The CFO counts and guards the cash. The CFO needs to be sure that money is well invested and benefits are realized.

To do this, the CFO needs projects to be outfitted with project cost management and benefits realization management.

  • Project Cost Management helps project organizations to track budget, actuals, and forecast.
  • Project Cost Controls helps to track changes with governance.
  • Project Benefits Realization measures the project outcomes against the initial business case.
