The extensive and ongoing regulatory changes in accountancy are at the root of Larry Parker’s research. He seeks to answer questions about how these sometimes difficult changes impact a variety of stakeholders and how those professionals adapt to the new environment. His work explores the organizational structure of accounting firms, as well as decision-making processes of accounting firms, corporations, and individual CPA practitioners.
