UPS CFO Kurt Kuehn shares how the CFO role requires a mandate to change the company. In fact, staying with the status quo is not a risk-free approach. For example, you need to critically evaluate whether the firm is working with the right vendors. Are your vendors helping drive the business? Are they making the breakthrough changes needed? If your vendors are not true business partners, then you may be increasing the risk to the firm by not staying competitive. The CFO’s role as a change agent is essential to make decisions now that will help the firm prosper in the future.
