How Do I Put a Little Life into the Internal Audit Report to Management?



I give a quarterly report (spreadsheet) to managment on the internal audit results: findings, dept/elem audited etc.
I would like to put a little life into the Internal Audit Report.
Does anybody have a presentation that keeps the audience awake?


Fully vaccinated are you?
I can't say off hand that I have anything to keep people awake other than coffee.

How detailed is your report? Do you discuss all of it or only the major issues?

Quite Involved in Discussions
talk to the hot issues using $$$$$/time wasted or saved ...that keeps them awake..or find the hot spots and tease them so they wait for the details


I generally cover the major issues and any changes or concerns that need to be communicated.

Make sure that the CEO attends the meeting. Present your n/c findings in terms of loss of productivity or loss of customer satisfaction (it's always one or other, or both). Initiate a debate to identify the primary causes and solutions. Ask the responsible managers to take the action items.

unlike in you personal life, in the industrial envioment, EVERY mistake costs money. Every one! Stress that in you reporting.
