Learning Lessons from the Master
The Association of Accounting Technicians published the results of a survey into intended training spend last week. http://www.aat.org.uk/about-aat/press-releases/staff-training-budgets-remain-strong-despite-weak-economy One hundred and five finance directors were surveyed and 92% of them said they would be spending more on training in the forthcoming year. Now call me an old cynic – you won’t be the first – but I always find these surveys of spending intentions to be somewhat unreliable. It’s all very well saying that you have increased the budget for next year, but most of you will know that when revenues and costs don’t quite add up as anticipated, the pledged resources often disappear pretty quickly.
