Most of the work described in your reading this week is central to the executive management roles of the organization, but the board needs to be engaged in the appropriate way at the appropriate times in financial management and accounting. Particularly, the board needs to be involved in obtaining the information needs of those within the company. In addition, the board needs to provide the organization’s financial statements for external stakeholders.
For this Discussion, use the information in your Learning Resources and outside sources when justifying your responses to the Discussion questions.
By Day 3
