Online Course on practical application
of the Integrated Reporting Framework
Integrated Reporting is a radically new approach to annual corporate reporting. Many larger organisations all over the world are making the transition. In South Africa, it is compulsory for listed companies. But what does it actually mean, who’s doing it, and what do you need to
know to advice your business or you clients?
Integrated Reporting focuses on the inter-connectivity of strategy, corporate objectives, performance measurement, risk assessment, resource
allocation and governance. More and more organisations are doing it and it’s
likely that soon an Integrated Report will be an expected part of the information
provided to stakeholders.
This course gives you a clear overview of the Integrated Reporting Framework, and practical advice on its application. It will enhance your understanding of this topical issue in corporate reporting, and enable you to develop an action plan for implementing the framework.
