Abstract [sv]

Forskning inom affärsrelationer visar att det är betydelsefullt och önskvärt att det utvecklas commitment mellan individer för att relationerna ska bli långsiktiga (de Ruyter & Wetzels 1999). Att utveckla en varaktig och fungerande kommunikation gynnar båda parter och det bygger förtroende (Granovetter 1985). I konkurrensen om kunderna blir det allt viktigare förredovisningsbyråers anställda att identifiera sig med klienter och dela deras värderingar för att behålla relationerna (de Ruyter & Wetzels 1999) och undvika höga kostnader vid partnersbyte (DeAngelo 1981). Forskningen som omfattar commitment har fokuserat på relationer mellan revisorer och deras klienter (de Ruyter & Wetzels 1999) medan relationer mellan redovisningskonsulter och klienter inte undersökts i vidare utsträckning i tidigare forskning. Vi har i vår studie kartlagt och analyserat commitment i relationer mellan auktoriserade redovisningskonsulter och deras klienter utifrån ett antal komponenter avaffektiv och kalkylativ commitment i en population av auktoriserade redovisningskonsulter från 21 län i Sverige. Dessa komponenter är kommunikation, ömsesidigt beroende, varaktighet, förtroende, gemensamma värderingar och förväntningsgap som testas genom hypoteser. Resultatet visar att kommunikation, förtroende och gemensamma värderingar har en positiv påverkan på affektiv commitment, vilket i sin tur leder till långsiktiga relationerenligt tidigare forskning.

Abstract [en]

Previous research in business relationship shows that it is important and desirable to develop commitment between individuals when relations should be long-term (de Ruyter & Wetzels 1999). Development of a sustainable and effective communication benefits both parties and builds trust (Granovetter 1985). In the competitive environment, it is increasingly important for the audit firm employees to identify themselves with clients and share their values to maintain relationships (de Ruyter & Wetzels 1999) and avoid the high costs of partner change (DeAngelo 1981). The research involving commitment has focused on the relationships between auditors and their clients (de Ruyter & Wetzels 1999) while the relationships between accounting consultants and clients have not been studied more widely in previous research. We have in our study surveyed and analyzed commitment in relationships between authorized accountants and their clients on the basis of a number of components of affective and calculative commitment in a population of authorized accounting consultants from 21 counties in Sweden. These components are communication, interdependence, duration, trust, shared values and expectation gap to be tested hypotheses.Our results show that communication, trust and shared values have a positive effect on affective commitment, which in turn leads to long-term relationships according to previous research.
