  Article Summary  
It has been said that finance and accounting can be "Greek" to non-finance people, and - when coupled with other challenges in the executive management/finance department relationship - there are multiple factors that drive business leaders toward improving communication with their finance and accounting departments.

This article identifies four prevalent complaints in the relationship and illustrates them with a frequently-observed scenario. Also discussed are six benefits generated by improved communication and understanding.

The best way for Los Angeles and Southern California business leaders to realize these benefits is usually for them to take initial steps to identify the challenges, identify the information and delivery timeframe needed, and identify desired improvements in the executive management/accounting department relationship.

A CFO services professional with a proven track record of improving communication in these areas can play a valuable role in increasing both performance and satisfaction levels of everyone involved.
