Upgrading Risk Management and Internal Control in Your Organization

Vincent Tophoff and J. Stephen McNally | IFAC Senior Technical Manager and Campbell Soup Company Finance Director and Comptroller

Jun 13, 2014 | at Institute of Management Accountants’ Annual Conference | Minneapolis, MN, US | English

Following a well-received presentation during the 2013 Institute of Management Accountants (IMA)’s Annual Conference, IFAC Senior Technical Manager Vincent Tophoff and Campbell Soup Company Finance Director and Comptroller J. Stephen McNally gave a follow-up presentation during the 2014 conference to discuss additional risk management and internal control (RM/IC) issues and considerations.

This presentation addresses the maturity of RM/IC arrangements in an organization and details a case study looking at how Campbell Soup assessed the RM/IC arrangements of its North American co-manufacturing operations. The presentation concludes with a call to action for professional accountants to:

  • Build subject-matter-expertise in RM/IC frameworks, standards, and other guidance;
  • Educate audit committee, senior executives, operating units, and functional management on RM/IC;
  • Support line management by providing high-quality information;
  • Establish good RM/IC for the finance function; and
  • Champion the importance of continuous RM/IC improvement.

This presentation follows the June 2013 presentation, Leveraging Effective Risk Management and Internal Control for your Organization.
