Course description

Innovation in Internal Audit: Part 2 - OAG226

Audit managers must understand, deploy, and sustain innovation as a key characteristic of their departments. This requires understanding the conceptual and practical aspects of creativity so it can be reflected in the planning, fieldwork, and reporting aspects of each audit and consulting engagement. But that is not enough. Innovation must be applied more broadly internally during the entire administration of the department, and externally while supporting the organization’s risk assessment process, the development of the audit plan and while interacting with all stakeholders.

Managers and directors set the direction, pace and priorities for their departments and innovation is key to:

  • Becoming agile
  • Enabling change effectively both inside and outside their units
  • Identifying better sources and uses of evidence
  • Hiring and developing innovative auditors
  • Moving from a rigid mindset to one where creativity, adaptability and resourcefulness prevail

It is not enough to desire a new image for internal audit; we must find innovative ways to use our limited resources to re-brand ourselves, broaden our role, and become more effective and efficient.

Part two of this two-part series of courses will look at the importance of innovation from an audit management perspective, focusing on areas such as change management, the Three Lines of Defense Model and examples of initiatives that can be implemented to demonstrate innovation in the internal audit function.
