When times are tough, you need to make sure that all departments and functions focus on the important issues. This is especially true for the finance department. Do all the senior managers in the company understand the issues the finance function faces on a day-to-day basis? Do they understand the “balancing act” the finance department has to manage between the needs of the business and the demands of the shareholders, the government, regulatory authorities and auditors? These are issues that all senior managers need to understand and not just the Chief Financial Officer and his or her team. And what about the finance team: is it fully aligned to the corporate goals? Does the finance team also have the right team structure in place to meet these targets and goals? Do they have the right people in place?

When times are difficult and when the economy is unpredictable, you need to make sure that your full team is aligned and on board. They need to be ready for whatever challenges come their way. Furthermore, when you can see “challenging times” ahead, your finance team is one of the most critical teams in the company. They need to make sure that the company stays focused on the finances and on managing the cash flows to avoid any surprises. More than ever, this is crucial for most companies and organizations.
