The monitor shows a regional breakdown by the four largest global audit firms and is intended to provide an objective analysis of the trends in movement of companies against these firms.
Data has recently been collated for 2014/2015.

During the middle of 2014 all Member Bodies of the GAA conducted identical surveys of their members on Succession and Continuity Planning, a critical process for most practitioners. The survey was conducted by Harris Decima in Canada on behalf of the GAA, and there were 4,547 respondents. The results were analysed by both Harris Decima and the Succession Institute in the USA. An article summarising these results can be found on PDF file and this video file. For further information please contact Stephen Harrison, CEO of the GAA at email@example.com.
