FSN's Innovation in the Finance Function Global Survey 2018 finds lack of agreed measure is halting innovation

FSN's Innovation in the Finance Function Global Survey 2018 finds lack of agreed measure is halting innovation

FSN’s Innovation in the Finance Function Survey 2018 is one of the largest surveys of its kind covering responses from than 1,000 senior finance professionals worldwide. It is the first time that there has been an in-depth study of attitudes to innovation in the finance function and it reveals startling insights about the appetite for finance innovation, including the impact of culture, attitudes to risk, organizational politics, style of project investment and levels of confidence in measuring return on investment.  

To make the case for innovative investment, CFOs and their senior finance executives need to be able to measure the return on investment (ROI), but there is very little agreement on how to go about it. Only a quarter of CFOs believe traditional methods of ROI are suitable measures of innovation success, and they don’t capture adequately the intangible benefits of digital innovation.
