Adding value to your organisation

Expectations of internal audit leaders have never been greater as the risk profiles of organisations develop over time. However, for many, these greater expectations mean doing more with the same resources. This requires effectively prioritising audit work and developing risk-based audit plans that truly meet the needs of the organisation, along with exploring more efficient approaches to work.
