“Merging Accounting Information Systems”

Suppose you are the Director of Accounting for a company that has just purchased another company. You are charged with merging the newly purchased company’s accounting department into your own, and bringing Stanley Smith, their Director of Accounting, in as your new Assistant Director of Accounting. How will you approach this?

  • Identify at least three (3) questions you want to ask Stanley and information you would gain from the responses. Provide your opinion on the principal challenges you will face as you work to merge the two accounting systems into one.
