Introduction to Agile Auditing

Course Description

In order to add value to organizations in a technology-driven, ever-shifting, global environment, internal audit and internal auditors must be agile — able to nimbly respond to disruptions and evolving risks faced by the organization. Thankfully, there are specific agile software development methodologies, which when paired with an agile mindset, can support innovations in the internal audit process to achieve sustainable value proposition. This is agile with a big “A”!
