The Future of the Internal Audit Profession
My good friend, Dan Swanson, asked me to write the introduction to his new book, Raising the Bar, with the topic being the future of the profession. Right after I sent it to him, I met with other practitioners and thought leaders in Australia, Atlanta (the IIA International Conference and committee meetings), and Malaysia.
I continue to believe strongly in the thoughts I expressed in that piece (read it here). In fact, I was encouraged by the clear movement by leading practitioners in the same directions. One IIA–Malaysia governor asked in a session with board directors how internal audit can provide assurance without expressing an opinion. I just smiled — my point exactly!
What do you think of the points in the introduction? What do you think is needed to take the profession where it needs to go?
