The Forgotten Role of Accountants in Value Creation
Our world is fast changing. The things that we thought are valuable in the past are now less valuable.
Businesses and organizations lead the transformation of our world to adapt to the changing times through more sustainable and innovative business models.
Most entrepreneurs and leaders do not have finance background. Yet, Finance and Accounting is a key pillar to hold a company up.
The role of accountants is to serve as support to transformational entrepreneurs and leaders to help them achieve their vision.
However, accountants are side-tracked. They were made to focus on the less valuable tasks. They need to go back to their true purpose in value creation.
Proposed new definition of accounting
“Accounting is a technical,
social and moral practice
concerned with the sustainable
utilization of resources and
proper accountability to
stakeholders to enable the
flourishing of organizations,
people and nature.”
Carnegie et al, 2020
