Excel in the "new normal" by learning from others

This is an AICPA CFO Conference session rebroadcast, presented by Steve Adams, Director of Gartner.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted businesses from Main Street to Wall Street, and CFOs are under tremendous pressure to take quick, decisive actions to protect their customers, employees and businesses.

Across the immediate, short, and medium-term, Gartner partnered closely with over 1,000 CFOs to understand and profile their response, and offer essential insights to enable success during this time.

As CFOs and their teams look to the future and aim to excel in the “new normal”, it is critical to understand how others are shaping strategies and what will separate winners from losers.
