This is probably one of the best seminars that I've attended - maybe ever!! Mr. Cokins is very knowledgeable and brings a wisdom to his teaching that enhances the depth of his knowledge. I thought that this was a wonderful presentation of why managerial accounting (as it needs to evolve) remains powerful and relevant.

This lecture is very helpful! It helps me to refresh the Activity Based Costing theory that I learnt from my graduate program. Also, it gives me an idea how accounting professionals can provide valuable information to the management and work with management to come up with right management decisions.

I enjoyed watching and participating in this webinar. I feel like we as CPAs need to be able to adapt to the amount of automation in our field and therefore what we value-add will primarily be our ability to use and promulgate the associated analytics.
