Ian’s Perspective

I believe that internal audit functions need to adopt a more agile approach to conducting their work and how they deliver value to stakeholders. Gone are the days of multi-year audit plans; audit functions needs to be risk-focused and constantly re-thinking prioritization of tasks and how to leverage technology to enable agility in what they do.

The future of work is exciting because the pace of change has never been more rapid. Thinking about what's next and where the next valuable idea will come from keeps us on our toes.
