Repeating business failures bring the importance of effective internal control to the forefront. This study has examined the link between internal control and organizational culture in order to better understand how managers can establish a culture that enhances effective controls. In contrast to existing research in accounting and control, which typically studies culture as a contextual variable, this study has examined culture as a variable that can be influenced by senior-level people.
