Keeping a Grip on Your Organization: How do You Know What You Don’t Know?

This session is focused on good governance for leaders of public sector organizations. There are significant risks emerging to almost all public sector organizations, including increased demands for services, less funding available from governments and increased regulatory involvement in many sectors. In order to manage those key strategic risks and take advantage of opportunities in a climate of change, it is imperative that the Board and Senior Management of public sector organizations have a “grip” on their organizations. The way in which public sector organizations structure their assurances across the three lines of defence needs to be re-assessed to ensure that organizations have the right assurances across the three lines of defence. Internal Audit plays a key role in providing an independent and objective function to assess risks and support public sector organizations in taking opportunities in a climate of change. This session covers a variety of areas around good governance to help and support public sector organizations navigate their way through a climate of change.
