An IMA Two-Year MilestoneBy
In October 2017, IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) celebrated the two-year anniversary of the launch of CareerDriver®, a career-planning resource that helps IMA members evaluate and get feedback on their technical and leadership competencies in management accounting.
CareerDriver has seen more than 4,000 member logins, more than 1,900 skills self-assessments completed, and more than 1,500 individual development plans created. Forty-seven percent of its users are younger than 40 years old, 22% are CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) candidates, and 48% have their CMA certification. The top three skills gaps identified from completed self-assessments are conflict management, capital investment decisions, and information systems and software literacy.
A recipient of the 2017 ASAE “Power of A” Silver Award, CareerDriver now has more than 1,000 learning resources, such as study courses, webinars, publications, and on-the-job activities, mapped to management accounting competencies.
