In the current Strategic Finance Magazin Raef Lawson and Larry R. White have described a contribution on a topic that does not only concern accounting professionals – the question of what does digital evolution does mean for our profession.
Human tasks are increasingly being done by machines. A number is a value and that’s fact. But what relevance does that value have for corporate governance? They warn against “false information” and demand analogue thinking in a digital world. Users want information that reflects the causal relationships of the rated business scenario or decision. And they point out that skilled workers have to acquire the necessary knowledge in order to be fit for the future.
