The recent evolution of data and analytics provides organizations with limitless opportunities to capture more value. Most organizations know they need to implement analytics in their operations, but many struggle with how best to do that. The material in this book will help managers and decision makers gain the necessary perspective to develop a strategy or hone existing efforts—even as continued innovation and technological advances are creating new applications for technologies.
The guide includes practice questions that will help develop knowledge of best practices in the industry, including questions specific to Mandatory Guidance of the IPPF and the Core Principles for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing. The questions are representative of the format, length, and content of questions that a CIA candidate can expect to see on future exams.
This updated edition provides internal auditors with guidance on how to put into practice The IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF). It represents a major restructuring of the earlier works, reflecting the new IPPF and Internal Audit Mission Statement, which came out in 2015 and introduced the Core Principles and Implementation Guides.
Author Rick Wright shows you how to align risks to business objectives, create a practical audit plan, and conduct a step-by-step risk assessment. New to the second edition:
Successful organizations figure out ways to effectively manage their risks to thrive in an uncertain and rapidly changing world. Some rely on the experience and business savvy of their leaders; many others leverage a more disciplined approach, commonly referred to as enterprise risk management (ERM).
This book tells the stories of 12 leaders who have all realized a career goal in the form of a title or role, but their desired destination is often tied to a sense of purpose or the need to be intellectually challenged. When presented with the prospect of greater responsibility or the occasion to influence the profession, these leaders recognized these as opportunities aligned with their desired destination.
Times are changing. Where there are challenges there are opportunities, but only if you embrace them. Disruptive technologies not only change the way companies do business, they have the power to transform business models, value propositions, supply chains, and customer relationships.
