IAESB Offers Online Questionnaire to Inform Development of Its Future Strategy
The International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) is launching an online questionnaire to inform the development of its strategy and related work plan for 2014-2016. The initiative is part of the IAESB's broader mandate to consult with key stakeholders to determine which issues should be addressed by the board.
“Public input is an important part of the IAESB's consultation process,” said Prof. Peter Wolnizer, IAESB chair. “It is essential the IAESB reach out to obtain the public’s views when determining the board’s future strategic focus and addressing the most relevant issues relating to professional accounting education.”
The questionnaire is the first stage of the IAESB's 15-month consultation process. Through the survey, the IAESB seeks feedback on educational challenges facing the accountancy profession. The IAESB's current strategic focus is on the revision of the International Education Standards, adoption and implementation guidance, and communications.
The results of the questionnaire will be used to develop a formal Consultation Paper, to be issued in July 2013, outlining the IAESB's strategic focus and the potential projects that might best support this focus.
The questionnaire will take no more than 30 minutes to complete and can be accessed online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/IAESBStrategySurvey. The IAESB encourages all those with an interest in IAESB pronouncements to submit responses, which are requested by September 19, 2012.
