While there are certainly commonly recognized practices that can help in the delivery of value and relevance, there is no one-size-fits-all playbook. Interestingly, most leaders cited similar initiatives, many of which align with their ongoing efforts to build a next-generation internal audit organization — work that many have had underway for years and that most also acknowledge is a journey of continuous evolution.
The stories in this edition of Internal Auditing Around the World® leave us feeling even more optimistic and energized about the future for the internal audit profession. We hope they inspire you as well.
