This course will enable you to:

  • Understand the key trends around the world and their likely impact on your organisation
  • Ensure that the finance function has a strategic voice in your organisation
  • Identify the drivers of change most likely to impact your organisation
  • Create your own personalised PEST analysis to inform your business planning
  • Prepare for future threats and opportunities that major global trends create

The accountancy profession is in a period of unprecedented volatility. Research reports around the world list several drivers of the change, including globalisation, greater regulation and the changing expectations of accountants, but all agree on one major factor: digital technology.

To help your organisation make the best decisions, and to inform your strategic planning, it is critical to understand both the current context in which we operate, and the likely future developments.

That means understanding the major global trends that you should be aware of for 2019-20. To help you with this, we have commissioned experts around the world to complete a giant PEST analysis. They will help you to explore the Political, Economic, Social and Technological trends affecting accountancy around the world today, and apply them to your organisation.
