"Why some auditors thrive while others struggle: The effects of multiple team membership on audit quality”
Balancing your performance across engagement teams
FAR Masterclass on 6 February 2019, 2-5 p.m. at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in Breukelen by Reggy Hooghiemstra (Professor at the University of Groningen) and Dennis Veltrop (Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen).
What was this masterclass about?
Working in multiple engagement teams is at the heart of how auditing firms organize their work. As such, in carrying out their audit work, individual auditors are generally members of more than one engagement team at the same time (i.e., occupy multiple team memberships, or MTMs). In this masterclass members of one of the FAR Research Teams shared their scientific insights on ‘how, why and when MTM impact auditor performance’. During the masterclass, it did not only become clear that working in MTMs may be a double-edged sword, but most importantly why some auditors are likely to thrive while others struggle in dealing with the pressures from MTMs. Based on their insights and interactive (table group) discussions, we aimed for a mutually informative exchange between auditing practice and research on this topic.
The FAR Masterclass was of interest to audit practitioners and firm management, auditing standard setters, audit supervisors, auditing students, auditing teachers and audit scientists. The masterclass was open to everyone
working in the field of accountancy.
