The “generic” skills of analytical and critical thinking, synthesizing information, appreciative or judgemental skills and the ability to reflect on people’s actions and procedures apply to many different contexts and empower the business professional to carry out problem solving and decision making at a high level of expertise.  These skills are now explicitly defined prerequisites for professional recognition and certification in the field of professional accounting.

This book is designed to instil an awareness of generic skills in students and to cultivate an understanding of the nature and interconnectedness of the diverse skills needed in professional practice.  The extensive interactive tasks and exercises in the text help students develop competency in these skills; while providing lecturers and tutors with a starting point for debate and discussion of the expectations of employers and the social pressures of professional practice.
