Assessing Your Personal Digital Readiness

AFP set out examine the personal digital readiness of individuals within the finance and treasury function. We asked how ready they are to manage accelerating change in technology, systems and business models. A panel of experts will review several key findings and present concrete actions you can take to prepare yourself for a digital future.
