Online Training Course Overview

Are your period-end accounting close procedures adequate and up-to-date? They probably are not. To address this issue the importance of Fast Close initiatives has become abundantly clear as increasing numbers of global organisations implement various Fast Close, or R2R (Record to Report) strategies and processes.

As the amount of financial data we are required to process has continued to increase day-by-day the speed with which we carry out the period-end accounts closing process has become a powerful KPI of management performance, and good corporate governance.

This Anderson online course provides a comprehensive analysis of Fast Close strategies, processes and best practice. Implementation of Fast Close usually requires varying levels of organisational, structural and procedural changes. This course will consider aspects of change management relevant to Fast Close and also how the uses of technology may support organisational and system re-design for improved reporting.
