Event Description

Topic: Internal Audit Transformation to Agile

Change Velocity is one of the “5 C’s of Risk” which should be keeping Internal Auditors awake at night (according to Richard Chambers’ new book:  The Speed of Risk).   One way to keep up with the fast pace of change is to adopt an “Agile” approach to internal auditing.  Agile is (by definition) the ability to create and respond to change.   

 Agile methodologies have been used in IT organizations for years for software development.  The hallmark of Agile approaches are adaptability and collaboration, both benefits which can be transferred to Internal Audit processes as well.
