Fourth and Final Publication in Series Exploring Ethics in an Era of Complexity and Digital Change Released


On 27 April 2022 the final publication in a four part series discussing ethical leadership in an era of complexity and digital change was released after a global roundtable event held jointly with Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS). Paper 4 is entitled: “Mindset and enabling skills of professional accountants – a competence paradigm shift”.


Professional accountants have a wide range of skills and competencies, which are underpinned by ethics, trust, integrity and recognition of their public interest responsibility. Complexity in the professional environment, brought on by rapidly evolving technology, digital disruption, and mis/disinformation is directly impacting all organisations and professional accountants.


IFAC has teamed up with the CPA Canada and ICAS to examine the ever-changing technology landscape and its implications for ethical leadership, including the challenges and opportunities ahead for the accountancy profession.
