Description

The world today is fraught with risks. Change and turmoil seemingly arise overnight, leaving existing business and operational strategies and tactics increasingly and sometimes immediately obsolete. To remain relevant and to not be left behind, internal auditors must become more nimble, better informed, and tech-savvy. This is not an evolution, but a revolution, as internal audit takes control, addresses its weaknesses, modernizes its processes, and redefines itself as nothing less than indispensable. In "Agents of Change: Internal Auditors in an Era of Disruption," based on IIA President and CEO Richard F. Chambers' latest book, practitioners are challenged to become powerful change agents through agility, an innovative mindset, effective communications, and business acumen.
