Making agile auditing work

Broadway House, Tothill Street, London
4 December 2018, 13:00 - 16:00

Panel discussion and lunch 

With more organisations adopting rapid styles of business transformation, internal auditors are increasingly being asked by key stakeholders to take an agile approach to their audit work. Agile methodologies are often promoted as a cure-all for waste and inefficiency in the audit process. But in the real world, agile auditing works better for some projects and in some businesses than others.

Knowing when and how to adopt the different styles of agile auditing in practice is not easy. As an approach that has come from the software industry, it entails working in short sprints with teams organised into small flexible units. For many auditors adopting agile methodologies can be an uncomfortable and confusing experience.

On our panel, two experts will provide some real-life guidance on how to get the most out of agile – and importantly, when not to use it. Nick Curle has been at the heart of transforming Barclays' audit shop into an agile-ready team. Gemma Haynes is an agile expert at PwC.

Lunch will be served from 13:00 with the discussion starting at 14:00. 

This event is open to members of your team too, provided they are registered as Audit Leaders team members.
