I was very pleased to be involved with a team from the European Union Internal Audit Service to chair their 1 day workshop on Creativity & Innovation in Internal Auditing in October 2017.
The agenda was packed with interesting topics and great speakers. The main themes were:
- The history of Accounting and Auditing – with insights into what might happen in the future
- The impact of technology on business and internal audit – we covered; A, B, C, D: AI, BlockChain, Cyber and Data but surprisingly it emphasised the importance of not thinking technology should be even the main focus
- Auditing Culture and Auditing behaviour – emphasising the importance of looking at these areas
- Lean auditing and agile ways of working (which I also participated in) – highlighting that Value and Productivity needed to be an essential area of focus for Internal Audit teams going forward.
