Improving Brainstorming by Improving Novice Auditors Performance in Brainstorming Sessions

Auditing Standards require auditors to perform at least one fraud brainstorming session during the planning stage of the audit. Auditing standards are silent, however, on the recommended format of the brainstorming session (e.g., independently, face-to-face, or interactive utilizing remote technology). While electronic brainstorming has been found to be more effective than face-to-face brainstorming sessions in extant accounting literature, auditors still primarily use face-to-face brainstorming sessions in practice. In this study, we examine how simple strategic reasoning interventions, deliberate mindset and justification can improve the performance of novice auditors in face-to-face brainstorming sessions.
