Implementation of the Sarbanes Oxley Act: A study on the problems that can arise when implementing an innovation tool in a company
2007 (English)Student thesis
Purpose; Purpose of this thesis is to review the implementation process of SOX in one company to be able to estimate which factors that are significant for individuals when it comes to accepting SOX as a tool to improving processes.
Method: Our approach in attacking the reality has been the golden middle-way, which means we have went into the reality with already constructed theories but along as the study went on we have refined theories, thus shifting between inductive and deductive approach.
Results/conclusions; Important obstacles that prevented adoption of the innovation had to do the characteristic of the innovation and the size and complexity of the organization; however we believed that the most significant blockade against change was the non-existing communication between the three different parties, namely consultants, managers and end-users.
