CEB Accounting & Reporting Leadership Council

CEB Accounting & Reporting Leadership Council helps companies improve the efficiency of their accounting processes, strengthen corporate decision making via reporting, and stay on top of new accounting regulations. We do this by providing key data, diagnostics, tools, answers, and training targeted to heads of accounting and their teams.

Our Research Focus

Equipping our members with strategic guidance and tactical tools on the topics most important for their function is at the heart of what we do. We don't just point to where you need to go: we provide you with a roadmap and a suite of implementation tools to get you and your team there. Key topics include:

Accounting Process Effectiveness

Financial Reporting & Compliance

Internal Reporting & Data Management

Record-to-Report: Reduce Effort, Improve Value
