- This project is a collaborative investigation into the changing skill set deemed necessary for professional accounting graduates over the next ten years and the strategies for embedding such skills into professional accounting programs. The goals for the 12- month project were to: identify whether there is a consensus as to the relative importance of key technical and non-technical skills for graduates of professional accounting programs to meet the challenges of the profession over the next ten years; identify the range of non-technical skills required of professional accountants over the next ten years; identify examples of best practice for the embedding of relevant non-technical skills in professional accounting programs; and widely disseminate findings to accounting academics for use in accounting programs in the higher education sector and to other stakeholders, with presentations at seminars in each mainland state and at AFAANZ conferences. Volume 2 documents the strategies collected as part of the 'Accounting for the future: more than numbers' ALTC study. The project team distributed a survey to all 38 public universities seeking information about how non-technical skills were being developed and assessed in all the relevant subjects required for accreditation by the professional accounting bodies. Further, respondents were invited to share with the project team initiatives they had implemented for the developments of these non-technical skills. After consultation with contributors, the strategies described in this volume are described in a common format that illustrates the strategy, non-technical skills addressed, learning and teaching rationale, assessment methods, length of time being used, and any evidence of success plus contact details of the author.
