Please find CIMA reports on the issue of reporting.
Our interest in reporting stems from a desire to promote efficient organisations. We believe there is a correlation between well run organisations and long term sustainable success and that reporting is a window on the information flows supporting decision making within an organisation.
A well run organisation should have the information available to report well; if good management information is not available then both internal and external reporting is likely to be poor. An effective reporting system allows these differences to be examined and promotes more efficient allocation of scarce resources.
The 'tomorrow’s corporate reporting – a critical system at risk' section provides information on the project by CIMA, PwC and Tomorrow’s Company into the fragmentation of the global corporate reporting system and the risks that this poses.
Report leadership is a collaborative initiative involving CIMA, PwC and Radley Yeldar. The focus of this work is the promotion of effective, engaging and accessible external corporate reports through practical illustrations of good reporting practice.
