This volume is dedicated to the topic of human capacity development in relation to meeting the requirements for high-quality corporate reporting. Over the past four years, ISAR has been developing and refining a comprehensive approach to achieving high-quality corporate reporting: the Accounting Development Tool (ADT). The ADT dedicates one of its four pillars to the human capacity for achieving high-quality corporate reporting. There are a number of human capacity related challenges that countries face when implementing corporate reporting standards and codes developed at a global level. It also highlights trends such as the adoption and implementation of international standards and codes, the increasing regional and international cooperation among regulators of the accounting profession, and the emergence of education initiatives.

Key foundations for high-quality corporate reporting: Human resources development challenges

There are a number of human capacity related challenges that countries face when implementing corporate reporting standards and codes developed at a global level. These challenges occur to a varying extent in all countries regardless of their level of economic development. Reorientation of existing national education systems to integrate globally developed standards and codes could take a considerable amount of time – in some cases an entire generation. Transition to a new accounting framework is challenging and a critical integral component of managing such a transition period is developing the necessary competencies in relation to implementation of the global standards. Thus, developing human resources capacity for corporate reporting in a sustainable manner requires regulatory and institutional support as well as reliable sources of funding.
