There’s a huge amount of focus these days on the changing role of accountants in organisations. Specifically the move towards more of a finance business partnering type role.
Whenever I’m running finance business partnering workshops, one of the most common things delegates raise as an action after the workshop is to spend more time learning more about the business.
Adding value is a great buzz word. In my experience you can only really add value by really understanding what contributes to success or hinders success operationally.
There is no shortage of accountants who are brilliant technically. They may well even be fantastic with all the technology too.
Equally there’s not an abundance of accountants who really understand the business and what drives success.How are you learning more about the business so that you can add more value as an accountant?
