Turbulence and uncertainty are major characteristics of today’s business world. The objective of the conference is to discuss the dynamic relationship between strategy, accounting and control within this environment. While most corporations face growing discontinuities in markets and products life cycles, in technological developments and in the nature of competitive pressures, accounting and control still lag in terms of responding to these needs. Moreover most organizations still face a lot of difficulties adopting an integrated approach toward the three areas.
Some of the aspects discussed by the speakers will be the following:
- The new vision for control in government organizations.
- The controllers’ challenges in the new world of organizations.
- Management accounting in the complex world of tomorrow.
- Accounting performance measurement and the information need of tomorrow.
- Strategic control processes in excellent Canadian corporations.
