DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
Regardless of the organizational chart, an IT Finance Manager/Budget Director must have a strong background in business, accounting and finance. For IT-specific positions, candidates will also need to possess extensive knowledge and experience in information technology, including product life cycles, capital expenditures and the development process. Beyond technical expertise, successful candidates will also have effective communication skills and have the demonstrable ability to work with teams across all levels in the organization.
It is important to note that because of cloud computing, the Internet of Things and the collection of big data in modern enterprises, the successful IT Finance Manager/Budget Director will need more than a tertiary knowledge of application development cycles and their corresponding budgetary provisions.
