The Paradigm Shift

Technology is reshaping the profession. While some accounting practitioners are reskilling or upskilling themselves using technological tools to transform the role they need to perform, tech-savvy practitioners with core technical knowledge are most needed by employers. Agility, resilience to change and the ability to embrace technology are the desired attributes of future accounting practitioners. The future accounting workforce should make good use of their creativity, agility, critical thinking and adaptability to effectively respond to an environment of technological change.
