1 How Drives Sustainable Success

2 What DO Accountants Do? accounting is more than you think Chartered Global Accountants combine financial expertise and business acumen. accountants are trusted to guide critical business decisions and drive strong business performance. They combine financial expertise and business acumen to achieve sustainable success. They understand how the different parts of the business need to come together. A GLOBAL ProFession CIMA, the Chartered Institute of Accountants and AICPA, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants two of the world s most prestigious accounting bodies, have formed a joint venture to elevate the profession of accounting by establishing CGMA as the most valued, globally recognised accountant designation. While many CGMAs work in the finance department, others put their broader business training to use across the organisation, including the roles of Board Director, Chairman and CEO. Chartered Global Accountants (CGMAs) are committed to professional ethics and a code of conduct. A single syllabus and examination standard ensures the consistency of a CGMA s skills all over the world. This document explains how accountants deliver success for those who lead organisations and how CIMA and the AICPA support CGMAs in that role.

3 WHAT THE BOARD/MANAGEMENT NEEDS TO BE SUCCESSFUL OVER TIME PEOPLE SUCCESS OVER TIME EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING FUNCTION PRINCIPLES PERFORMANCE SYSTEM PRACTICE AREAS accountants help organisations to deliver success over time. Boards and senior are responsible for leading long-term, sustainable success. Their goal is to continue to generate value for stakeholders over time by determining strategy, setting the risk appetite, articulating the organisation s culture and managing change. accountants help them do this by identifying and exploiting opportunities to generate value for stakeholders, while pro-actively managing costs and risks. Successful organisations have effective accounting functions. It is the combination of competent people, clear Principles, well managed performance and robust practices that make a accounting function effective. HOW A CGMA DELIVERS FOR THE BOARD /MANAGEMENT Chartered Global Accountants link the board objectives to the business, enabling the right decisions to be made, appropriately funded and correctly implemented throughout the organisation short and long-term.

Three of the Principles apply to the discipline of accounting and the Principle Stewardship builds trust applies to the individual behaviours of accounting professionals, meaning that they act with integrity and follow an ethical code of conduct. They are the ethical conscience of the organisation. THE KEY ACTIVITIES OF THE MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING FUNCTION The role of Chief Finance Officers (CFOs) is changing. In many organisations it is expanding to include IT, human resources, and even operations. All CFOs however, have responsibility for the accounting function. There are fourteen main practice areas that CFOs oversee. Internal audit does not sit within the function but accounting makes a significant contribution to the system of controls which is tested by internal auditors. The key activities of the mangement accounting function Cost transformation and External reporting strategy Internal control Investment appraisal and budgetary control Project Regulatory adherence and compliance Resource Risk Strategic tax Treasury and cash Price, discount and product decisions Internal audit
