For accountants and auditors, change is everywhere: from new technologies to virtual communication methods to entirely new recruiting methods, to name but a few examples.
For many practices, the dizzying pace of change is cause for concern, confusion and frustration. For some, the easiest approach appears to be inaction – just continue to do things as they always have been done and we should be OK.
The stark reality, however, is that you’ll quickly fall behind in today’s ever-evolving world if you don’t embrace change. That’s why change management has become such a critical concept in the business world — and why accountants and auditors need to understand it well.

Effective Change Management in Accounting and Auditing explores just what change management is, how it has evolved over time and why it can be so beneficial to practices around the world.
