Audit Challenge 2016, 21. Juni:
Erleichterung der Ressourcenallokation in der
praktischen Umsetzung durch elektronische Abgleiche der Team IST- und Soll-Konfiguration
CAEs looking to enhance the technology-related capabilities of their internal audit groups should take a close look at the results of the 2015 TeamMate Internal Audit Technology Survey (IATS), which focuses on Technology Champions, and the insights stemming from those results. In its global survey of internal audit functions, TeamMate found that having a Technology Champion on staff is a leading practice that can significantly enhance internal audit performance. Of the more than 400 internal audit groups around the world taking part in the 2015 survey, nearly 250 indicated that they have Technology Champions, and of this total, nearly nine in 10 report achieving real and tangible value from the position. In addition, 36 percent of responding organizations with Technology Champions indicate that their TC is viewed as a strategic player and a key member of internal audit management. Survey results also indicate that internal audit functions with Technology Champions tend to employ continuous monitoring at a much higher rate and make more extensive use of data mining, clear indicators that their organizations have achieved a higher level of technology maturity. They also tend to have larger, and more formal, technology budgets. Given the results of TeamMate’s 2015 IATS, internal audit organizations without a Technology Champion should explore how they, too, could benefit from adding the position. And for internal audit functions with TCs, the fact that 82% of the individuals serving in this position expect to continue in this capacity suggests the need for chief audit executives to update TC job descriptions and expectations on an ongoing basis to ensure continued development of both the individual and the department. A suggested approach: Tailor TC responsibilities to your changing needs and modify your expectations of the position accordingly.
