The course provides good insight to the future of analytical accounting and does not dismiss the core 80% of responsibilities. However, it does promote how the accounting professional should approach the business in a value added strategy.

Overall I enjoyed this course as it covered many areas within Finance and the future of Finance Organizations. Many future of finance discussions focus on new technology, while this focused more on the true overall organization.

I LOVE how these instructors delivered this information. It was down to earth and not robotic. I got a laugh out of their acronyms JFDI and PUTDP. Very timely and informative..
