Often times, Officers find themselves performing accounting duties whereas they have not acquired formal training in the profession. For example, will it be right to blame staff (transferred from say Personnel Department to Accounts Department or Audit Department) for non-performance when the staff affected is neither a professional Accountant nor has he been formally trained to enable him to perform well in his new Department? It is a statement of fact that Managers in most Accounts Departments fall into the category of those that have not been formally trained. Until this group of managers, which constitutes the ‘engine room’ of accounting operations, is held to sharpen their skill, the full benefits of even employing professionally qualified Accountant at the top will not be realized.
