​How Agents of Change Can Shape Internal Audit's Future


In his blog, IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers shares his personal reflections and insights on the internal audit profession.

​As most of my readers are aware, I will be stepping down as president and CEO of The IIA in a few days. While I am looking forward to beginning a new chapter in my nearly 50-year career in internal auditing, I am happy to have completed a significant goal before my final day on the job at The Institute.

Last week, my latest book, Agents of Change: Internal Auditors in an Era of Disruption, debuted at The IIA's annual General Audit Management virtual conference. The book is being described as the third in a trilogy. When I put pen to paper on my first book, Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail in 2014, it was not my intent to create a series. However, in retrospect, my published works do reflect the rapid evolution of the profession over the past decade. And, humbly, I submit that they tell a powerful, intriguing, and important story.

Lessons Learned was a semi-autobiographical story that shared a bit of wisdom I had gleaned from a career that included public-sector, private-sector, and nonprofit internal auditing. Five years later, I offered an updated look at the audit trail in a second edition to the original manuscript, titled The Speed of Risk. In between, in 2017, I wrote Trusted Advisors: Key Attributes of Outstanding Internal Auditors, which examined the characteristics of internal audit leaders who had earned a seat at the corporate table. Those two books were intended to inspire readers to grow professionally and spark a drive for continuous growth and learning.

The final installment, Agents of Change, is much more a call to action.
