pierwszej części artykułu zaprezentowanej w numerze 11 Zeszytów Naukowych Akademii Podlaskiej przedstawione zostały rozważania teoretyczne na temat nowej roli działu finansowego w zarządzaniu przedsiębiorstwem. Coraz częściej dział finansowy uczestniczy w procesach gospodarczych nie związanych z księgowością (na przykład analiza klienta), jak również bierze aktywny udział w określaniu strategii organizacji. Artykuł przedstawia analizę i ocenę empirycznych danych odzwierciedlających działalność pięciu zespołów finansowych.

In the previous article theoretical underpinnings of the changing role of finance department as well as theoretical framework guiding the study were presented. The general transformation pattern sketched embraced horizontal dimension of more involvement of finance department in other business processes beyond bookkeeping (e.g. customer analysis), as well as vertical dimension of increasing influence of finance department in important strategic decisions. This article presents empirical data and analysis of five finance teams in different stages of 'business partner' journey.
