How can auditors maximise their perceived value-add?

Edward Haigh; Martin White; and Fergus Navaratnam-Blair.

Non-discretionary work like audit isn’t always seen as “value-generating” in quite the same way that discretionary spend—consulting services, for example—is. But is that really fair? In this episode, we explore the relationship between audit and value, as understood by clients; and we ask what auditors can do if they want to maximise their perceived value-add.
