Professional accountants in business are diverse, working in commerce, industry, financial services, education, and the public and not-for-profit sectors as employees or advisers. Many are in a position of strategic or functional leadership or otherwise well-placed to collaborate with colleagues in other disciplines and help drive their organizations’ sustainable success.
Professional accountants support their organizations in a wide range of job functions, including leadership and management; operational; management accounting and control; and accounting and stakeholder communications.
The Professional Accountants in Business (PAIB) Committee provides leadership and guidance on relevant issues pertaining to professional accountants in business and the business environments in which they work. The PAIB Committee focuses on multiple topic areas: the roles, domain, and competencies of accountants in business; governance and ethics; sustainability and corporate responsibility; risk management and control; financial and performance management; and business reporting.
Following the Professional Accountants in Business Committee’s September 2017 web meeting, this report shares the collective knowledge, ideas, and experience of the committee regarding the role of professional accountants as business leaders and value enablers for organizations.
Created as an overview and resource, this presentation addresses tech trends and their impact, and disruption, of accountancy and the finance function.
The presentation is available to IFAC member organization to share and/or customize.
