IMA's Strategic Plan and Innovation

By Jeffrey Thomson posted 03-28-2013 07:57 AM

Hi All,

We are in the process of developing our multi-year strategic plan, which includes significant input from our members on the products, services and solutions they need to enhance organizational capability.  In for-profit land, that is the invaluable "voice of the customer".  Here, the analogous term is "voice of the member" and please keep it coming.

IMA strives to sustain its growth in size and influence, despite competitive challenges including consolidation of accounting associations around the world.  We have a strong balance sheet, the CMA program is growing around the world, with globalization, significant partnerships and innovation being key.   Our culture and communities are strong and thriving.

IMA also strives to be a leader in innovation, and you may have noticed a steady stream of new products such as the "sustainability bundle" with more to follow.   We will have some major announcements on innovation at our 94th annual conference and exposition in New Orleans this June, so stay tuned.  My favorite quote on innovation is "don't let what you know limit what you can imagine".  For IMA, we owe it to you to envision a future that enriches careers, organizations and society.
