Is Your Audit Department "Highly Effective"?

How can CAEs develop strategic plans that result in their stakeholders viewing the audit function as “highly effective”? CPE: 1.0

Summary:

Today's fast-paced and evolving business environment requires internal audit to consider its capabilities and needs to ensure appropriate strategic planning. How can CAEs develop strategic plans that result in their stakeholders viewing the audit function as “highly effective”?

Our research has found an approach that builds on three dimensions of effectiveness that must be addressed to be highly effective:
• Meeting stakeholder expectations
• Operating core processes
• Conforming to internal audit standards and applicable regulatory requirements

Learning Objectives
In this session, participants will:
• Discuss the need for and importance of strategic planning within the internal audit function
• Explore the 3 dimensions that contribute to a highly effective internal audit function
• Populate a framework to understand how processes and expectations are aligned and where changes need to occur
• Develop an initial strategic vision based on an understanding of stakeholder expectations
