Agility is disrupting the way that organisations operate. It’s more than an alternative to their traditional ways of doing things, as it’s a state of mind. Agility is a response to the emergence of an information-based society and the structural changes driven by globalisation, rapidly changing regulations and shrinking budgets. It’s a trend and an innovative way to successfully manage an audit.
Internal auditing is a strategic area for businesses, and it’s one where agility is a key factor. Nowadays, an auditor must be cautious well in advance, in order to react quickly to any risks resulting from technological and regulatory changes. Risk management should be the focus of the second line of defence.
Setting up an agile internal audit requires a systematic and disciplined methodology, based on flexibility and an iterative approach. This is suitable for large organisations, where the decision-making process includes many steps, and for smaller organisations where relatively limited audit resources will be devoted to activities that result in emerging risks.
Monique Garsoux, co-founder of QAA, offers you a training course that is unique on the market and taught in English, ‘Agile Internal Auditing’. During this course, Monique will guide you so that you acquire a better understanding of this innovative process for your company.
