Tags: Accounting profession has come under increasing institutional pressure
Description:
We study how mid-tier accounting firms deal with changes in their institutional environment
that resulted in a shift in emphasis from the trustee logic to the commercial logic. We
find that these mid-tier firms selectively adopt practices related to the commercial logic,
while retaining a principal commitment to the trustee logic. Interviews with high level
informants in these firms show how specific strategic choice opportunities serve as independent
critical events framing practice-adoption decisions. Main strategic issues for the
mid-tier firms relate to the changing role of the accountant and changes in organizational
structure and practices. As these issues fundamentally challenge characteristics of their
professional identity, there is internal resistance against this transformation. Nonpartnered
accountants mainly challenge new roles that upset their extant work routines,
whereas partners resist changes affecting their autonomy. These types of resistance
directly impact the strategic organizational responses of the accounting firms to institutional
pressures.
