Global Management Accounting Principles

Adopting the Principles

The purpose of the Global Management Accounting Principles© is to support CEOs, CFOs and boards in benchmarking and improving their management accounting functions. The Principles provide a reference for all management accountants to check that they are adding value for their internal and external customers, across fourteen core practice areas.

The Principles document provides guidance for best practice. Our diagnostic checklist will help you assess the current effectiveness of your management accounting function against the Principles, and to identify areas for improvement.

In 2015 we will be launching an online diagnostic tool to accompany the principles.

Endorsers and adopters

Chief executives, CFOs and chairmen have submitted an open letter in support of the Principles to the Financial Times.

The leaders, including the Chairman of J Sainsbury, David Tyler, and Vodafone CFO Nick Read, commented, 'at a time when economic growth and recovery have never been so critical, we encourage government and business leaders globally to consider how these Principles can help drive sustainable success in their organisations.'
