Successful internal audit activities are built on a strong foundation - a foundation sturdy enough to withstand increased pressures from internal and external stakeholders, a turbulent geopolitical landscape, and evolving business practices.
Unfortunately, weaknesses in a foundation are not apparent until the foundation is stressed, and then it's too late - the foundation crumbles. When the foundation crumbles, it becomes more difficult for internal audit to provide valuable services to the organization.
This Pulse Report is intended for chief audit executives (CAEs) who are building new internal audit activities, as well as CAEs who want to examine the structural soundness of established internal audit activities.
This report covers resources, competence, structure, IIA standards, and other foundational elements necessary to deliver world-class internal auditing.
