Course Introduction ›

In an uncertain and challenging economy, organisations expect internal audit to go beyond reviewing historical activity and assessing low value transactions. Our key stakeholders require internal audit engagements that are insightful, forward looking, and go beyond simply preserving value to creating value for the organisations. As such, critical and creative thinking skills are essential characteristics of the 21st century internal auditor. Root cause analysis (RCA) helps us to employ critical and creative thinking to identify the key, underlying causes behind our internal audit findings.

As internal auditors we can use RCA to obtain clear insight on the real, underlying causes of governance, risk management and control failures. Developing a clear understanding of what has gone wrong can lead us to create and propose robust solutions to avoid similar incidents happening again. Understanding the fundamental causes means that we can help our organisations take positive action to prevent recurrence of negative outcomes and to promote business opportunities.

We can sometimes take our internal audit fieldwork and testing for granted. We do not always give testing the love and attention that we save for the report at the end, or for the terms of reference at the start of the internal audit engagement. But effective testing is vital. It can make or break the internal audit engagement. It is the testing that generates the evidence we need to deliver insight and added value. RCA can encourage us to think critically and creatively to design and deliver more dynamic tests and to persevere until we generate meaningful results.

Applying critical and creative thinking to internal audit testing through effective RCA enables us to deliver clear insight and conclusions to support our business and board leaders in enhancing governance, risk management and internal control practice.
