Why Innovation?

The world is changing – and only 8% of CPAs think the profession is currently future ready, according to a study conducted by CPA.com. With the advent of new technologies poised to change the workload of CPAs, to a demand for finance leaders with strategic skillsets in the C-suite, today’s CPAs need to be innovation-minded. With this innovation gap, the CPA Center of Excellence® and Indiana CPA Society are partnering to provide resources on innovation and provoke conversation and change along four innovation subject areas: The Changing Role of the CPA, Talent and the Changing Workforce, Globalization and the Marketplace, and Disruptive Technology and Innovation. We’ll be focusing on these content areas on this website – so keep checking back for new content. Join the conversation on social media using #cpasinnovate. Coming Soon: To keep reading, choose a subject area below (debuting throughout the year).
