State of Accountancy: Waves of Change

Tom Hood, CPA, CITP CGMA discusses hard trends forming big waves of disruption and change across the CPA profession. The soft trend is whether the accounting and finance profession will recognize them and respond proactively. Will the accounting industry be like the taxicab industry fighting Uber? Or will it embrace and extend these oceans of opportunity and learn how to surf?
