Added-Value Internal Auditing Chain

– effective and efficient arrangement of workflows and their interaction within the internal audit –


The goal of this consulting module is to become acquainted with and understand the added-value internal auditing chain along with its various options of configuration in primary and secondary sub-processes as well as the benefits and disadvantages which arise as a result.

ARC consultants provide support so that course participants can orient their own audit processes according to their individual company’s requirements. For this purpose, the interaction between supporting activities and core auditing activities – so-called primary activities – should be coordinated as optimally as possible. In this regard, particularly the respective form of organization and size of staff within the organizational structure are to be taken into account for the efficient and effective achievement of a target-focused audit result at the conclusion of the process chain.

Numerous previous consulting mandates enable ARC to provide course participants with various practical examples as reference models in a benchmarking comparison according to branch of business and focus of audit objectives.
