Relationships and Risk – Insights from Stakeholders in North America

The profession of internal auditing has been making great advancements in performance, positioning, and perception. The Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK) stakeholder project confirms these advancements but also highlights opportunities for internal audit to push even harder, moving to the next higher level of value for organizations. This presentation focuses on providing initial findings from North America. While there is much to be explored in the survey responses, at a high level, a clear picture emerges regarding the importance of risk and relationships.

Hear what your stakeholders have to say about you, your internal audit function and what advice they have for you.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how internal auditors are doing on the fundamentals
  • Discover what kind of information stakeholders want beyond assurance from auditors
  • Explore stakeholders’ opinions on the auditor’s role and scope of that role in the area of strategic risks.
  • Discuss how to prioritize competing demands while addressing stakeholders’ expectations.
