Bleeding or Leading - Which Edge is your Company On?
“Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Many of the companies that we define as scale players in motion have either lived through or were borne out of this chaotic period and, as a result, have a steely resolve encoded in their DNA.” (Nassim Taleb)

In this month’s edition, we focus on the road ahead from a macro perspective; provide actionable information on what CFOs can do to navigate the crisis; improve margins; and, reduce one of a company’s largest expenses – rent.

We are pleased to announce that we are expanding! Recently, James Round and Teri Barroso joined DecisionCFO with a focus on expanding our institutional business development initiatives and developing our executive recruiting practice (for the finance, HR and IT functions) respectively. These activities coincide with the re-launch of our website.
