Agility in Finance
This award will recognise those using agile and lean principles and practices across contracting, procurement and finance. We’re looking for organisations that have introduced ways of working that sustain the governance of financial reporting and control, whilst making room for innovation in the face of enduring change and uncertainty.
Achieving Agility in Finance requires a blend of compliance and reporting with an agile mindset and the trust that allows innovation, partnerships and collaboration to thrive. Our reviewers will be looking for those organisations that have achieved an agile ethos and culture, whilst also defining boundaries for budgets, procurement and contractual relationships. Balance is key to excellence in Agile Finance, so that risk to the business is controlled, regulatory compliance is assured, and a robust legal framework protects all collaborations and third party relationships. Award entries will be reviewed within the broad perspective of the Framework for Business Agility and against the 12 Beyond Budgeting principles.

- Organisations intentionally aligning finance, contracts and procurement to agile principles and practices
