Fill in your P3 knowledge gaps
16 February 2017
The ACCA examiner is worried about P3 students’ knowledge gaps in project management, big data, competency frameworks and the learning organisation.
Surprise was expressed in the December Examiner’s Report as there is an article on each of these in the learning resources on the ACCA website.
Big Data, for example, is now part of the P3 syllabus, and the examiner has defined what exactly ‘big data’ is, and how it can be used to inform and implement business strategy.
The learning organization article discusses why it is vital for organization to continue to learn to sustain their position in the dynamic marketplace.
The report also highlights articles on culture and configuration, conflict management and the accountant as project manager, business forecasting and strategy, and competency frameworks.
You really do need to read all of these for the March exam.
