Toolkit aims to help firms with change


CPA firms are preparing to experience significant disruption over the next few years as technology, succession issues, and other factors will change the marketplace.

During a presentation at the AICPA spring Council meeting in New Orleans, AICPA Vice President—Firm Services & Global Alliances Mark Koziel, CPA, CGMA, described what it takes to become a high-performing firm of the future. The AICPA Private Companies Practice Section (PCPS) has created a Firm inMotion toolkit that provides a road map for that transition.

The toolkit is available at aicpa.org/pcps/inmotion.
