Navigating Uncertainty, Positioning Internal Audit for the Future

The ongoing effects of COVID-19 are changing the way businesses operate and their outlook for the future.  With change comes the need to increasingly focus on managing uncertainty and associated risks, be they internal or external, financial, operational, strategic, regulatory, involve technology, or related to reputation.  Through the development of greater resilience and relevance, organizational leaders are facing these change headwinds armed with new strategies, competencies, data and technology. Leaders are needing to look beyond yesterday’s playbooks and instead, rethink their approach and the opportunity to deploy adaptive strategies that are agile and anticipatory of future needs. The session will explore the impact of COVID-19 on the profession, how internal audit is navigating the uncertainty and how we can better position the profession for the future.  Is the profession capable of navigating the uncertainty and capitalizing on the opportunity?
