fhnw.leadInternal and external risks are crucial for companies to be minimized. An internal audit function helps a company assess the effectiveness of its internal control system and therefore the control of risks. The paper is going to evaluate how Zehnder Group could implement an internal audit function.
fhnw.initialPositionWith growing size and global positioning, the risks of a business generally increases. Zehnder Group has implemented a sufficient internal control system to reduce risks but no internal audit function. Even though the group has several strategic initiatives which help to reduce the complexity of the business model, the Board of Directors and the Management desire an assessment of a possible implementation of an internal audit function.
fhnw.procedureIn order to find out if Zehnder Group should implement an internal audit function and if yes, how the company should proceed, first, the theory about internal control and internal auditing is going to be presented followed by an assessment of Zehnder Group's current control system. The third part includes benchmarking the group with three other companies, Komax, Rehau and Swisscom, in order to understand how these companies have implemented their internal audit function. Finally, a tailor made recommendation based on all three parts is going to be given.
fhnw.resultsGiven the theory about internal audit, the current situation of Zehnder Group and the benchmarking, Zehnder Group should implement an own internal audit department since this would ensure a maximum level of compliance with IIA-standards, generate economies of scale in internal auditing due to specialisation, ensure the control over the assessment of the ICS, enhance the ICS and finally, would best fit to the company's growing business environment. The benefits for Zehnder Group are an overview of the international standards in internal control and internal auditing, an analysis of the groups current control system and a presentation of three other companies and their internal audit function. Furthermore, the paper outlines criterias which can be used to decide how an internal audit function could be implemented. These criterias are summarized in a decision matrix which can be adapted anytime to the company's needs.
