This is one of the reason that explain why XBRL benefits are not a driver for interest in XBRL: auditors cannot know, actually, which could be the benefits arising from XBRL because benefits will depend on the regulatory requirements. Judging from the expectation of the auditors and from their answers, it seems to be confirmed the principles of a normative isomorphism. In fact, in this category each auditor feels the need to receive a rigorous set of rules to follow, in order to comply with and to take advantage from law requirements for making clearer its ideas about XBRL, that is, opportunities, costs, benefits and technical implications of XBRL.

The answers received by the auditors have in common the recognition of a close relationship between the technical and the economic perspective. Obviously, auditing firms could have a great interest in XBRL if benefits exceed costs related to its implementation, adoption and successive assurance activity. Observing the results of the interviews, it clearly emerges a real difficulty for respondents to divide the economic from the technical perspective, being very strictly linked among them. The interest in XBRL, for this category of respondents, depends on the possibility to take advantage from the technical efficiency allowed by XBRL and, at same time, to take advantage from the higher profits that could arise from an XBRL assurance activity.

Under this approach, the XBRL paradigm is thought of as a new, advanced step in the history of the auditing practice, and performing an XBRL assurance is thought of as a great innovation. However, all of this requires time and a set of different means to disseminate XBRL within a social and cultural context. In our opinion, this perspective may find a theoretical context in the Diffusion of Innovation Theory [56, 57]. It aims to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread through cultures, where diffusion is defined as the process by which an innovation is communicated through certain channels over time among the members of a social system.
