Objective Centric and Demand Driven Internal Auditing
Field: Auditing | Delivery Method: Self Study | CPE Hours: 1.0
Which centric approach are you following in your internal audit plan?
Jason Mefford speaks with the legendary Tim Leech about the difference between objective, risk, compliance, process, and control centric approaches ... and centric is not the same as based.
Learn the difference so you can start improving the value you add to your organization by taking an objective centric approach ... the one management expects.
Are you focusing on providing internal audit services demanded by your board and management, or are you supplying what you "think" is best? To remain relevant with your stakeholders, you need to provide work that is relevant and demanded by the board and management.
Risk-based internal auditing is objective-centric when you actually link to key objectives ... a critical step most in internal audit forget. "Risk ranking an audit universe based on another centric model, does not risk-based internal audit make." Yoda :)
