Since Mazars has usually been a partner of the finance function and related areas in conjunction with its responsibilities as auditors, in its consulting division it also offers a range of solutions to enhance the effectiveness of this function in keeping with emerging best and innovative practices. Focused upon three key dimensions, namely, strategy, operations and risk control, it relies on the approach described in this publication on transformation of the finance function. This publication also describes Mazars’ approach on financial management. It is based on a comprehensive analysis of the “Model of information and management” of the company, which structures the process of reporting and monitoring of the organisations. This approach provides a diagnosis of financial management and how this can be aligned with the overall organisational strategy with the help of financial tools.
