The 21st Century Public Company Audit, a new monograph co-authored by Timothy B. Bell (KPMG LLP), Mark E. Peecher and Ira Solomon (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) discusses conceptual underpinnings of risk assessment, evidence gathering, and other professional judgment activities that are pervasive in 21st century public company audits.
Information technology is bringing dramatic changes to business models and strategies, to business processes, and to business measurement, including accounting. Such changes necessitate fundamental and pervasive reconsideration of financial-statement audit technology. In a monograph entitled, Auditing Organizations Through a Strategic-Systems Lens, two leading practitioners and two leading scholars present their thinking on the foundations of auditing technology for the twenty-first century. KPMG's Business Measurement Process is used therein to illustrate key concepts and ideas.
