‘The Evolving Dimensions of The Accounting Profession and The 21st Century Expectations’
(Jeremiah & Daferighe, 2019)

The dimension of the accountancy profession is undergoing an increasingly expanding and unpunctuated global evolution. These 21st-century twists, however, tend to pose an identity threat to the profession. The much-celebrated software substitution of the traditional roles of the Accountant coupled with the apparent professional cross-carpeting of non-accountants aided by these emerging digital initiatives appears to ‘take-over’ the seat of the Accountant. The following roles were identified for the discussion.
Evolving Dimensions
The Accountant as a Corporate Pathfinder Embrace an enlarged strategic and commercial role
The Accountant as a Guardian of the Corporate Model Develop a global orientation
The Accountant as a Competent Communicator Reinvent the talent pool
