Performance Dynamics continues to develop its work with major finance teams helping them to build a Business Partnering capability. Recently we worked with a global pharmaceutical business as well as a leading UK and European distribution company to help reshape their finance teams’ service offerings. In both cases the work was part of a wider finance department transformation agenda that included considerable systems investment as well as looking at the individual Business Partner service offer.

Indeed we have recently seen increased interest from the finance function with regard to developing a business partnering capability as more and more finance teams look to transform their operations.

Earlier this year we also worked with a major UK Housing Association and its centralised services operation in similarly helping to develop a Business Partnering strategy and capability. In this case we also worked with IT and HR professionals as well as Finance team members. The aim again being to develop a common “client centred” operating style and vocabularly across the service organisation.
