Our approach

Protiviti helps transform internal audit function across all industries.  We help organisations align the practice of internal auditing with expectations of key stakeholders, including senior management and the board of directors.  We provide transformation for organisations worldwide by:

  • Evaluating current state practices against professional standards, regulatory expectations, and leading practice.
  • Establishing a view of current state, capability maturity, and existing leading practices, working with internal audit leaders and key stakeholders to establish a roadmap.
  • Defining transformation strategy. We understand the strategies and needs of the broader organisation and support internal audit leaders in translating those into an internal audit transformation strategy & plan.
  • Supporting all aspects of the transformation journey.  From establishing a vision and strategic plan, helping to build sourcing and talent strategies, updates to risk assessment, delivery, and reporting practices, improved coordination, and collaboration with other assurance functions, to driving increased use of data and technology.
