Factors affecting the auditor selection decision of FTSE 350 companies

Philip Drew talks about his research, which is of direct relevance with regards to the recently introduced regulations requiring FTSE 350 companies to put audits out to tender. The research looks at how the process of supplier selection is conducted when it comes to professional services and identifies 5 principle elements which influence auditor selection: capability assessment; past relationships; service design; individual behaviours; and the decision-making process itself.

2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
