The CFO Alliance partnered with Drinker Biddle to collect survey responses from a broad sample of over 600 CFOs and other senior financial executives across the U.S. to provide insights into the strategic planning and financial outlook of these executives.

By identifying the biggest issues and opportunities for CFOs across North America, the Study identifies the critical issues and factors influencing 2015 budgets and plans of your peers and how planned spending and investment will shift from 2014 to 2015.

Stay tuned as we identify areas where we can foster exchange between us, financial executives, academnics and other industry experts.
