IFRS Project Management – 5 Phase Conversion Model

//IFRS Project Management – 5 Phase Conversion Model

In successfully planning any project, one very useful tool is a project management model. The 5 Phase model for conversion of Canadian GAAP to IFRS is discussed in this web-site. It is one of many different approaches that a company can take, and can be adapted to organizations of any size. The 5 Phases are as follows:

• Phase 1 – Diagnostics
• Phase 2 – Design and Planning
• Phase 3 – Solution Development
• Phase 4 – Implementation
• Phase 5 – Post Implementation Review

Please read the documentation relating to all phases, and work streams detailed in this web-site. Acknowledgements for this model go to CICA and E&Y.

I hope this helps. This is one of a series of blogs that is meant to convey information relating to Canada’s transition from Canadian GAAP to IFRS.
