How do accountants add value to the organization in today's dynamic business environment?
We must evolve into operations-focused business partners who have advanced beyond the practical accounting skill set. We must take a broad strategic perspective of our organization's needs and focus on maximizing value for multiple constituents. While accountants typically generate financial reports, we must use broad business competency and strategic financial mastery to analyze data from financial and non-financial resources.
We must understand that a business partner contributes to the organization as a forward-thinking, solutions-driven decision maker.
