Course Description

Management accounting practices have become increasingly progressive since the 1980s. What are the top trends with management accounting? They include channel and customer profitability reporting, integration of corporate and enterprise performance management (CPM/EPM) methods (e.g., strategy maps, balanced scorecard), driver-based rolling financial forecasts, applying analytics, and co-existing methods (e.g., lean accounting). This presentation examines how cost modeling has evolved over the last century. It will describe the trends and obstacles that have helped or delayed developments. Collecting, validating, and reporting data is not the same thing as analyzing the information that can be gleaned from data. Most organizations are drowning in data, but starving for information
