Building Capability in the Finance Department
To be able scale up or scale down as necessary
The value of a corporate finance department that's scalable is that, adding capacity, adding turnover, adding transactions, even acquiring other businesses, isn't directly commensurate with number of people you need to add to support that. If the processes are well designed and the structure is correct, then the size you need to increase your back office to in order to cope with the increased business, is much smaller. It's not just throwing people at a growing business.
