To prepare future professionals, management accounting education must change as well. Into help its members, students, and the profession at large prepare for careers in management accounting, IMA published its Management Accounting Competency Framework. This research has documented the ongoing evolution of the role of the management accountant from an accumulator and reporter of financial information to being a more strategy-oriented business partner.
Since the publication of the Competency Framework, the field of management accounting has experienced considerable change. Oversighta traditional CFO role, includes resource allocation, ensuring a healthy financial profile for future investment, and more. Hindsight entails looking backward to influence the future in a positive way—in other words, using historical data for future projections.
Foresight is where finance professionals play a leading role in anticipating the future and helping their organizations envision the future. It includes strategic planning, competitive moves, and innovation.
A key factor driving this change is the relentless evolution of technology. Technological advances are reducing, and in some cases eliminating, many of the routine tasks performed by management accountants, freeing them to add more value as business partners with the rest of the organization. Strategic management, which includes strategy formulation, validation, and implementation, is becoming an essential competency for management accountants to possess. To succeed in their evolving role, management accountants will need to employ more sophisticated analytics.
In the past, they provided descriptive and diagnostic statistics. Today, as shown in Figure 1, they must move to the higher end of the analytics continuum—to predictive, prescriptive, and adaptive analytics. But they require new competencies to be able to perform this type of analysis.
To ensure that its Competency Framework reflects the current and future competencies management accounting professionals need, IMA formed a task force that was charged with examining the changing practice landscape and proposing any necessary changes.
After an extensive process which included a review of primary and secondary research, focus groups, and extensive deliberationthe task force has developed a revised Framework, depicted in Figure 2. The change in the name of this domain is more than just including analytics. As Big Data matures, accounting and finance professionals now have at their disposal vast amounts of data that can be exploited to create value for their organizations. Management accountants will need knowledge of data extraction tools for mining structured and unstructured data.
Given the rapidly expanding universe of data, there will be dramatic changes in the skills management accountants need in this area. A comparison of these competencies included in the original and new Frameworks see Figure 4 reflect this change. Information Systems includes using technology to effectively control operational and financial processes, solve problems, analyze data, and enhance business performance. This competency encompasses familiarity with Big Data, data storage, systems architecture, and database management in addition to enterprise resource planning ERP systems, the cloud, and new and emerging technologies.
New competencies are required to combine and analyze data from various sources. Data Governance ensures the availability, utility, integrity, and security of data. Management accountants must understand and influence the governance of technology, including data and cybersecurity. Organizations must implement controls such as penetration and vulnerability testing to detect and thwart cyberattacks.
Management accountants understand the flow of data throughout its life cycle, and they will need to oversee processes to protect the privacy and integrity of stakeholder data. Data Analytics includes the extraction and analysis of data using quantitative and qualitative techniques to gain insights, improve predictions, and support decision making.
While the required level of competency may vary for management accountants, at a minimum it must include knowing what types of analytical models are available for example, deep learning vs. Beyond that, important, perhaps essential, skills include the ability to transform raw, unstructured data into a form more appropriate for analysis data wranglingthe ability to mine large data sets to reveal patterns and provide insights, and the ability to interpret results, draw insights, and make recommendations based on analysis.
Data Visualization is the ability to present data in a visual context to make patterns, trends, and correlations stand out and be easier to detect so users can make better decisions. Management accountants must evaluate data visualization options and select the best tool for presentation to stakeholders. Strategic business decisions need to be based on the integration of data and professional judgment as applied to differing business environments.
While Ethics was included in the original Decision Making domain, the Framework noted that Professional Ethics permeated all the other competencies in the Framework. Given the importance of this competency, the new Framework explicitly identifies it as a separate competency domain that underscores the other five domains.
As noted previously, the revised Framework reflects ongoing changes in the management accounting profession and the competencies needed for success. This raises the question of how well academic institutions are preparing their students for future careers in this field by offering a curriculum that encompasses the competencies included in the Framework.To fulfill this pledge, IMA first issued a code of conduct in the early s that was designed to guide the ethical aspects of the business as well as the personal decisions of its members and their organizations.
Financial scandals in the beginning of the 21st Century led to publication in of the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practicea more comprehensive guidance document with which members are required to comply as a condition of membership. After many changes in the business and regulatory environment since the Statement became effective—including the globalization of commerce and the management accounting profession—IMA determined to issue an updated version in The newly issued guidance is the result of several years of research by the IMA Committee on Ethics CoEwhich studied and evaluated the ethics codes of other professional organizations as well as the global ethics standard for professional accountants issued by the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants IESBA.
A subcommittee task force of the CoE undertook the first phase of the revision process: the study and evaluation of other codes of conduct. It developed initial concepts for modifications of the existing Statement that were then thrashed out in both telephone and face-to-face debates and through extensive deliberation by the entire CoE. Language changes that triggered controversy were hammered out through compromise.
The document retains a focus on ethical values and principles rather than formalization of prescriptive, precise, and legalistic rules. It encourages professional judgment, challenging members to demonstrate ethical behavior in every aspect of their lives. It also is aspirational, suggesting members should encourage others within their organizations to follow its provisions. The new Statement is also being incorporated into the content of IMA professional ethics courses.
Continuing the structure of the previous version, the new Statement includes overarching ethical principles as well as standards. This reflects numerous research studies that show the most effective approach to promoting strong ethical decisions is based on communicating ethical values based on principles rather than setting forth detailed legalistic rules.
A commitment to ethical professional practice includes overarching principles that express our values and standards that guide our conduct. In addition to performing their own employment responsibilities in accordance with the IMA principles and standards, members should encourage others within their organizations to adhere to them.
The need for behaving ethically also applies to all activities IMA members engage in, not just their actions as management accountants and financial managers.
IMA Educational Case Journal
This means that members should embody the IMA principles in their actions outside their workplace, which includes their dealings with others in their community. Honesty requires conscientious application to the task at hand and truthfulness in all analyses and communication outcomes. Fairness requires just and empathetic consideration of the needs of others when making decisions in a particular situation, as well as full disclosure of all necessary contextual information.
Objectivity requires impartial, dispassionate consideration and evaluation of conflicting points of view before arriving at an optimal conclusion. Responsibility requires all actions to be performed with faithfulness and loyalty.
The overarching principles are intended to provide freestanding additional guidance to help members and other financial professionals consider the ethical values involved in the decisions they make. Unlike the overarching principles, which are aspirational and general in nature, the standards set forth four areas of enforceable conduct that members must uphold and comply with.
Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action. The four standards require the application of specific steps involving the qualities of competence, confidentiality, integrity, and credibility. Each IMA member has a responsibility to comply with all of the standards.
Almost all of the requirements contained in the previous IMA Statement are carried forward to the new version. One exception is that the new competence standard adds the example of recognizing and helping to manage risk.
