For over 2 decades the profession has been trying to solve the staffing question. As firm leaders are exploring the impact of flex work schedules and technology like RPA and AI augmenting the skills of our team, it is time to reframe the productivity question. In place of focusing on how to get more staff onboard to do more work, we should look at the structure and make up of our teams. What roles do technology play? What positions can be filled by non-accounting professionals? Where do we use bots and fractual staffing to level the peaks and valleys of busy seasons? Join this session to discuss these questions, and hear many other perspectives to reframe the productivity question of the 21st century.
