Developments in technology are driving new commercial models and working practices which have the potential to make the role of the accountant redundant. On this course, you will explore the impact of these changes on accountants. You will understand how the accountancy profession is evolving in the light of these changes, and be empowered to engage pro-actively with this evolution.
Who should attend
This course is essential for any accountant who plans to be working in the profession in the next decade. It is also especially useful for anyone who manages finance or accounting functions within an organisation.
What you will learn
- You will begin by tracing the development of the accountant as a business adviser, with reference to lean production and beyond budgeting.
