I recently read there are five FP&A roles: data scientist, architect, analyst, influencer, and storyteller. Which of these roles do you think is most important? Are there any other roles that FP&A professionals need to assume? It would be great to hear others' thoughts on this.

I think an accountant in FP&A has to be all of those (and probably more). I would view the latter two as related to our output, being intentional and aware of how our work product is used to answer questions and make decisions. Analyst is something of operations for us, working with data to produce information. I'd look at architect as managing inputs within the organizations data, building control systems and managing the sources of the data we analyze. Data scientist is also something of an input control, but for ourselves. It is making sure our skillset is up-to-date and fit for the work we're doing.
