Personality-based Internal Auditing PBA®

Are you an Board Audit Committee member, a Chief Audit Executive, an audit director or an internal auditor?

 Are you asking yourself: 

  • How to embrace foresight? How to replace (past related) hindsight and (contemporary) insights with future-oriented insights?

  • How to keep pace with stakeholders' increasing expectations, providing insights of high strategic relevance as trusted advisors? What can internal audit do to stay relevant?

  • How to assess adaptability, innovation and future-readiness - the key features of winning organizations in the next decade?​​

 Do you want to: 


  • Get deep insights regarding the "new thinking" required by digitalization, i.e. understand the meta-level, the logic behind the information?

  • Evaluate corporate culture, the future-readiness and the innovation capability of your organization in a tangible, future-oriented way?

  • Get to know the Personality-based Internal Auditing PBA® methodology that leverages The Organizational Personality Framework in the context of internal audit?

  • Be at the forefront of internal audit innovation, contributing to a systemic approach that combines internal audit and scientific psychology?

 You've found the right place! 
 Consulting. Speaking. Training. 

I am Barbara Siegenthaler, and I pionieer a systemic approach that combines business expertise and academic psychology into a new 360 degree thinking and evaluation grid for human factors, across the organization - including strategy, culture, innovation, change programs, recruiting, leadership, governance, and assurance.

I am the founder of The Organizational Personality Framework and the Personality-based Internal Auditing PBA® methodology.

Both approaches leverage the explanatory and predictive value of the so-called Theory of Personality Systems Interactions. PSI Theory is a meta model from the domain of personality and motivation psychology, considered by academic psychology in Germany as "groundbreaking" and "highly innovative".

The basics: Organizational behavior can result from characteristic personality system interaction patterns. 


In 2017, I founded Savanteon LLC, an innovative start-up. I am honoured that Prof. Emeritus Julius Kuhl, founder of the Theory of Personality Systems Interactions, and a nationally and internationally renowned expert in the field of academic psychology, is one of my collaboration partners.

 Great to meet you! Get to know my services: 

  • Consulting services for boards, new generation leaders, innovators, audit executives and think tanks regarding human factors in organizations, based on The Organizational Personality Framework.

  • Personality-based Internal Audit PBA® services for assurance experts, including personality scans for individuals and groups.
