    Denise – good article, touches on a lot of good areas. However, I think one thing is missing, and its as old as the standards themselves. Some companies (i.e. upper management) simply do not see value in the internal audits, and do not provide the resources (time) necessary for good audits. The company performs internal audits in a perfunctory manner, with emphasis on getting the audits done so that the auditors can go back to their real jobs. No doubt, some of this is simply my failure to persuade companies of the value of internal audits, but the problem occurs so often that I am sure there is more to it than that. I would be interested in any comments you have in this regard. Have you found a good line of reasoning to persuade companies to provide more management support for audits?
