Professor Robert Kaplan first drafted his book Relevance Lost in 1987. It had a profound impact on accounting systems at the time. However, three decades later, in spite of many an advance in academia and technology and the development of stringent regulatory frameworks, the world of business is plagued with the parallel ills of too much irrelevant data and insufficient relevant information. Professionals in the realm of Finance are not fluent in the language and the workings of business and business operations. Business leaders who have not specialised in finance feign knowledge of finance but lack depth in their understanding and hence, fail to detect tell-tale signals early.
Corporate Governance has been the rhetoric of regulatory dialogue and literature for over 2 decades and concepts such as Integrated Reporting, the Balanced Scorecard and Triple Bottom Line have become buzz words in the recent past. Nevertheless, the search for something more and the thirst for something new are yet unquenched as business leaders, investors and a host of stakeholders still strive to make sense of the world around them and its bearing on the entities that they are interested or involved in. Two of the top four audit firms in the world have fallen into disrepute of late and painful memories of Arthur Anderson‘s role in the Enron and WorldCom sagas still haunt us.
Required:
Write an academic essay explaining why greater disclosure, more stringent regulations, constantly revised accounting standards, new concepts and a world of information still leave many users of financial information groping in the dark when it comes to predicting the future with reasonable accuracy.
Your essay should examine issues of :
a)Ethics, integrity, and accountability on the part of individuals and organisations responsible fordisclosure and firms responsible for auditing financial information.
b)The relevance, volume and frequency of financial information produced and disseminated &
c)The inability of users to meaningfully interpret the ocean of data available to them.
The essay should not exceed 1,600 words (excluding relevant references)
