Aaron Gagnon of McKinsey & Co Dreams Bigger When It Comes to Audit Strategy

Join Richard Chambers for a new episode of his Agents of Change video series, featuring conversations with internal audit leaders from some of the world’s most prominent organizations about innovation in the profession.

In this episode, Richard sits down with Aaron Gagnon, Chief Audit Officer of McKinsey & Company and former CAE at Apple and Abercrombie & Fitch, to discuss why his playbook for building forward-looking internal audit functions always starts with getting his house in order and cultivating relationships of trust across the organization, including:

  • If you receive a blank check from the Audit Committee and a mandate to transform internal audit — what are your next steps?

  • To build stronger relationships across the org, start by sharing with others — even as far as your quarterly audit report to the Board — and they’ll be more likely to share with you.

  • Dreaming a little bigger: why getting to the next level isn’t about how many audits you complete, but about how you elevate your team, improve your technology use, and impact the company.
