Establish a transformation vision and goals. Make the case for change.
Status quo and legacy ways of working will result in falling behind rather than keeping up. Internal Audit leaders need to embrace the need for change and key Internal Audit stakeholders need to expect it. Business initiatives, regulatory requirements, and technology have all been subject to significant change; Internal Audit functions need to change and evolve simply to keep up and must embrace transformation as a business-as-usual activity, continue to position for the future needs of the organisation.
We help establish transformation priorities and plans, and support in their implementation, offering advice on leading practices and strategies to deliver successful outcomes and enable change.
