There’s no question about it: the accounting sector is more dynamic than ever and it continues to evolve.
As expected, there’s some anxiety associated with this shift. Accounting professionals desire alignment between their policies and the departments they serve, but collaboration becomes difficult when perceptions don’t match. And it doesn’t help that the accounting industry naturally focuses on what’s trying to be avoided (fines, fraud, risk, etc). Yet, this focus on avoidance and what we don’t want can damage team dynamics.
It’s an unfortunate reality that accounting professionals find themselves stuck in a never-ending struggle between two groups: those who want to get things done fast, and those who see the value in taking time while keeping a close eye on regulation. Bringing these two groups together feels just about impossible at times.
