Getting your arms around what is expected of the top oversight function for your organization (governance) can be a simple task. This bundle covers the governance structure, the internal audit role, and a reminder that it’s all influenced by the health of the culture.
Advancing Organizational Governance: Internal Audit’s Role
By: P. Dean Bahrman, CIA,
Governance, which includes the important subsets of risk, control, and compliance, is the “space” in which internal audit plays. There are tremendous opportunities for internal auditors to add value to their respective organizations through work they can perform in advancing organizational practices. This book offers “how to” guidance and tools on internal audit’s role in providing assurance design and operating effectiveness, key risks and audit steps to take when gathering evidence, using capability maturity models, managing risk, and other roles internal audit may fill.
Best Practices: Evaluating the Corporate Culture
By: James Roth, PhD, CIA, CCSA
This book argues that evaluating the corporate culture is an internal audit best practice and gives practical examples of how this can be done. Evaluating soft controls—tone at the top, the organization’s ethical climate, and management’s philosophy and operating style—and reporting weaknesses to those accountable is perhaps the greatest challenge internal auditors have ever faced. Readers who have hesitated to evaluate soft controls because of the tremendous challenge involved will find what they need to get started. And readers who are experienced in this realm will find something to help them do even better.
