Course Description
Staying relevant and keeping up with the changing needs of our clients is one of the top challenges facing accounting firms today. Firms that resist these changes or stick with the “old ways” will find themselves chasing relevancy and behind the curve in serving their clients’ needs. Firms must stay up-to-date with the ever-evolving technology, but there’s more to being a thriving firm of the future than the latest and greatest tech. In this course, we’ll explore challenges firms face on the road to thriving in this new environment. In this one-hour MAPCast, we’ll look at what firm leaders need to start doing today to be prepared for these changes and to make the most of the opportunity that we’re facing. You will leave with a clear picture of what it will take for their organization to move into the firm of the future.
