Everyone/every department/every company struggles with it. How do I measure success? (Well, maybe it really isn’t that hard for companies. Out of business? Unsuccessful. But you get my point.) And I think internal audit is the epitome of how that conundrum leads down false paths. We pine for objective measures — timely reports, hours of assurance, number of findings. But our measures of success are, at heart, truly subjective. And we must recognize that the traditional measurements toward which many of us gravitate are not accurate pictures of what we do; nor are they accurate portraits of success.
