By: Paul L. Walker, PhD, CPA

Businesses today are spending more time on strategic issues and seeking more help from those with strategic capabilities. This has created a unique opportunity for internal auditors to help their organizations both manage their risks and achieve their strategic goals. 

In Become a Strategic Internal Auditor, you can learn how leading internal audit functions work with management to play a role in strategic initiatives. 

  • Stay connected to the business.
  • Get involved earlier in the life cycle of strategic projects.
  • Use enterprise risk management (ERM) to raise risk and strategy questions.
  • Employ leading-edge risk assessments to gain knowledge for strategic initiatives.
  • Identify new skill sets needed to engage in strategic planning. 

Become a Strategic Internal Auditor is based on multiple interviews and case studies at ADP, VMware, Raytheon, Harley-Davidson, and other leading organizations. It provides practical information that you can use to become a trusted strategic advisor for your organization.
