Will Project Darwin evolve?

Ever since the bulk of the Big Five began moves to divest themselves of their consulting arms, accounting firms have run the risk of seeing themselves cast as tickers and bashers once again.

It may not be the case, but you could forgive the layman for asking that without business consultancy services what is left for accountants apart from tax and audit?

But it’s good to see KPMG insiders acknowledging the problem as they seek to roll out Project Darwin, a project that appears a sound attempt to remove unnecessary tiers of management by automating internal authorisation processes and fostering an entrepreneurial spirit.

Will Project Darwin evolve?

With a budget of Pounds 16m, the firm is putting its money where its mouth is. It will take more than that to maintain accountancy’s position as a premier career choice, but it?s encouraging nonetheless.
