Quality decision making has never been more important – or more difficult. New innovations and innovators daily disrupt the status quo. The volume and velocity of unstructured data is increasing complexity. The Global Management Accounting Principles© were created for this era of business. Prepared by the AICPA and CIMA, they reflect the perspective of CEOs, CFOs, academics, regulators, government bodies and other professionals in 20 countries across five continents. The purpose of the Principles is to support organisations in benchmarking and improving their management accounting systems. The Principles help the public and private sectors make better decisions, respond appropriately to the risks they face and protect the value they generate.

A great start for CGMA to build on. The self assessment tool will need to develop over time, but could be a great way to build up a data set independent and representative of what finance is actually doing in organizations. Thereby, the function can drive benchmarking over time, towards executing on strong principles across all sectors and even regions.
