The quote on the image has been taken from a great article “Next-gen accountants: Will they have the right mix of skills?” CPA magazine – IN THE BLACK
It discusses the need for accountants to have a broad range of skills outside fundamental accounting qualifications.
The article mainly focuses on the use of and skills in data science and artificial intelligence, but also highlights the advantage in accountants transitioning from other professions where they can bring skills from outside the pure accounting arena.
The article states: “It’s not just number-crunching and processing data. Fundamental to accountancy are customer service, problem solving and teamwork across all different organisations and functions, and at all levels.”
