Please read the article ‘3 Strategic Recovery Priorities for Management Accountants’ by Nick Jackon, Financial Management.
1. What are the ways in which Jackson suggests that accountants can contribute to companies’ resilience during and after the Covid-19 pandemic?
2. The article suggests that ‘businesses are increasingly looking to invest in finance technology that gives them visibility of their productivity and supply chain challenge’.
a) What do you think this financial technology might look like?
b) How might the financial technology you imagined above change the way a business operates?
3. In a post-Covid-19 world, accounting may be less about numbers and more about technology and relationships.
Think back to when you chose to study a business course before the pandemic began – how do you think the role of an accountant might be different now to how you imagined it to look then? What additional skills might you need to demonstrate when you enter the post-Covid-19 workplace?
