Session at the Boomer Tech Conference with Sandra Wiley and a group of emerging leaders to work on what they think the "firm of the future" will look like.
This includes our research over the past three years with our New Young Professionals Network (NYPN), MACPA and AICPA Leadership Academies, and most recently a poll from the AICPA EDGE Conference for young professionals and emerging leaders. In-depth perspective came from two facilitated session with graduates of the MACPA Leadership Academy - one in 2011 where they produced a whitepaper titled, "what got you here, won't get you there" (See slide hare documents) and a second session facilitated using ThinkTank collaboration system. Combined these produce a bright picture of what these young leaders hope the future firms and organziations will look like.
This presentation is set in the context of the major trends in the market, we call the "Shift Change" and includes the CPA Vision for the Future from our work with the AICPA Horizons 2025 Project. Also included is our conceptual career framework we call the Bounce.
The Bounce covers the career trajectory of professionals as they move from technical proficiency to managing people and projects and ultimately organizations. The bounce speaks to the change in direction from technical mastery to acquiring competencies to lead others and leading organizations. It is about velocity and trajectory as you shift direction to the need for more “success skills” as you move up n your career. The Bounce includes the latest research on competencies from the AICPA through the CPA Horizons 2025 Project and the CGMA Competency framework.
