A paradigm shift for accounting

Accountants need to learn how to provide knowledge and simple answers to questions rather than providing data.

The common practice nowadays is that accountants dive into full details and start sending out all those raw details leaving the management to figure out the answers by themselves. Instead, an example of some good answers would be: increased by 10%, or around 5 Million, no more.

Almost all accountants can do numbers very well, but these days, managements are on the lookout for accountants who have better communication skills that enable them to communicate simple and useful information, and without any misunderstandings.
