Download the Whitepaper 

Treasury Transformation: Insights from Middle East and Africa (MEA) identifies both drivers and barriers to transformation, as well as case studies from practitioners in the MEA region.

Lessons from the AFP Treasury Transformation Survey:

  1. Concentrate on your project objectives. Seek and share information to obtain the best outcome.
  2. Map out new operating procedures, processes and workflows. Implementing automation without a plan won’t solve any problems.
  3. Focus on the treasury team. Provide staff with information and training.
  4. Meaningful evaluation of a project is difficult. While costs can be calculated, qualitative benefits are more difficult to itemize.


There is a companion paper that addresses responses from those located in the Asia-Pacific.
