The requirements for internal audit in companies are increasing more and more. The trend is moving further and further away from a purely auditing function of internal audit (with at least instructions for improvement when errors are detected) towards increasing acceptance as a business consultant and driving force for the company.
On the one hand, however, the capacities in the internal audit functions of companies are often quantitatively limited. On the other hand, auditing tasks are becoming more and more differentiated and specific, so that it often does not make sense for companies to provide the appropriate resources for the diversified internal auditing tasks in each area.
