Late last month, I was the keynote speaker at the Tax Executive Institute in San Mateo, CA. This was a gathering of global tax leaders from accounting firms and public companies coming together to discuss the impact of technology in tax and accounting professions. I asked several folks a simple question — how much of your time is spent gathering data compared to acting on it? The surprising response from many attendees was over half of their time — and these are expensive senior leaders! Imagine if instead that time could be spent on strategic initiatives and investing in people.
