#FutureReady Firm “The bottom line
is that CPA firms need to increase their future readiness in order to successfully navigate the fast future of change. In fact, every enterprise in every industry needs to get better at predicting what’s coming. By understanding the metrics (Hard Trends) that influence our future, we can design (with purpose) a better, preferred future. That is the big idea behind future-readiness – to have the capacity to take action with intent and design in order to adapt quickly and thrive.” Source: CPA.com Insight into the CPA of the Future Study 2015
