Jamming with Jason: Giving Up Some Independence is OK
Field: Auditing | Delivery Method: Self Study | CPE Hours: 0.5
Independence and objectivity are two words I hear auditors use incorrectly all the time. Even though the standards describe internal audit as being independent and objective, the truth is very few internal audit functions are truly independent, but we have to remain objective. While we may not be able to control our independence (don't worry I explain in the episode) we have complete control over being objective.
