Read CFO Magazine's article, An Incentive to Control Incentive Pay, featuring Axiom's Juan Pablo Gonzalez. “CFOs don’t often get involved with human-resources issues, but when it comes to incentive compensation, they should,” says Gonzalez. “At a minimum, the CFO’s team should be involved in running payout calculations and performance curves against various assumptions about the company’s performance. But the greater value is in having the CFO look behind the numbers to assess whether bonuses are really driving the behavior that supports company strategy.”

"I have spent half my career as a consultant and the other half as a client. This experience has shaped me as an advisor and guides my work. Every day I ask 'Would this deliverable have met my needs? Are our solutions implementable in our clients' environments and with their resources?' I have been told I set high standards for our engagement teams – You should have seen me as a client!"
