This is a guide for new auditors that covers all the basics: from value proposition of internal audit to governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), and how to conduct an audit. There is also guidance for experienced auditors who can reflect on what they should be doing.
In this 2nd edition of Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail, author Richard Chambers shares fresh perspectives on the lessons in the first edition and imparts new lessons learned during the last few years. He has invested more than four decades serving the profession. His belief and motivation in writing this new edition is that if he can help just one internal auditor to be better prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, then the effort will have been worth it.
