Presentation to the Standing Advisory Group of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) on June 5, 2018. Presented by Rebekah Brown, CPA and Tom Hood, CPA, CITP, CGMA.
At the Business Learning Institute (A subsidiary of the Maryland Association of CPAs) we are on am mission to help the CPA Profession be #futureready and ride the big waves of transformation coming at us. In 2014 we engaged the help of a leading global futurist and WSJ Best-selling author, Daniel Burrus to help us. Our work with him identified a new approach to working in this period of exponential change.
The concept is to create an 'Anticipatory Organization®' capable of identifying the key trends impacting an organization or even a profession. Using his 'Science of Certainty' we can identify the hard trends that will happen and begin to identify opportunities around those trends and predictable problems if we ignore them.
We have adapted this framework around the concepts of being #futureready - Being AWARE, PREDICTIVE, and ADAPTIVE of emerging trends in technology, social, demographics and regulations.
We believe that instead of just reacting to the ever increasing rate these trends are coming at us, we should learn how to anticipate those trends that can be expected with a degree of certainty. This Will allow us to design a better, preferred future with purpose and intention rather than getting swamped by these bigger and bigger waves of change.
This presentation to the PCAOB SAG for their Data & Technology update is framed around these concepts of #futureready and our work with Daniel Burrus on how to better anticipate trends using his ANTICIPATORY ORGANIZATION® Model.
