Every business has a technology gap. The bigger the gap, the bigger the problem – but some sectors experience the impact of new technology more than others.

Preparing now for the inevitability of change is even more vital.

ACCA has a strong track record in always looking ahead to anticipate change and understand its impact on business, finance and accountancy.

They are now starting to work in partnership with employers around the world to help support them and get ready for that change.

As part of a new initiative, they have looked at ten major drivers of change and are inviting employers to explore just how ready their businesses are to cope with them.

Challenges such as digital, risk, the global economy, politics, legislation, cyber security, ethics, even climate change - are all set to impact business and the finance department in potentially unimagined ways.

Technology – more than just automation and AI – is the most likely to create the most seismic impact on the finance, audit and accountancy functions. The industry is in a race, even if they don’t realise it yet – a race for future relevance.
