New Book by Richard Chambers Calls for a Revolutionary Evolution in Internal Audit
To be ready for the future and reinforce their crucial role in organizations, internal auditors must not only embrace change, but become a catalyst for transformation. That’s the key takeaway in The Institute of Internal Auditors President and CEO Richard F. Chambers’ latest book, Agents of Change: Internal Auditors in an Era of Disruption.
Combining data from a global survey of chief audit executives, as well as tapping into more than four decades of learning, observation, and experience, Chambers – one of the leading voices and thought leaders in the internal audit profession – lays out the necessary steps for practitioners to improve processes and skills, and importantly, their mindset.
“Throughout this book, I examined internal auditing’s evolution, from its origins centuries ago to today’s modern profession, and the arc of that history has indeed been much more evolution than revolution. That must change. We can no longer afford the comfort of only responding or reacting. We must be proactive. The forces that control modern business, economies, and societies demand agility and resilience, and our organizations deserve nothing less from us. Internal audit must be on the forefront of change.”
