Business stakeholders have always needed a key point of contact within finance to provide answers and guidance.

Other organizations seek to weave business partnering responsibilities into existing roles within the finance team. Regardless of the structural approach, there is a need for business stakeholders and the finance function to specifically define the expectations and possibilities of finance/business partnerships.
