​The Journey for Internal Audit Holds Valuable Lessons

In his blog, IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, shares his personal reflections and insights on the internal audit profession. Here's an excerpt from his latest post:

​We kick off the 2019 General Audit Management (GAM) conference today in Dallas-Fort Worth with more than 1,200 in attendance either in person or through our new livestream offering. As always, the event is packed with informative sessions on issues and trends crucial to internal audit executives. In fact, the first general session this morning (at 9:15 a.m. Central Time) will be an in-depth conversation I am having with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commissioner Hester Peirce. GAM is also where the Internal Audit Foundation will officially unveil my latest book, The Speed of Risk. It's an update to my first book, Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail, published in 2014.

I'm proud of the work that went into this new book, and appreciative of those who helped me pull it together. As they say, it takes a village, even for one book. You might be asking at this point, "What's new?" If you'll indulge me for a moment, I encourage you to read the following preview from the book's first chapter, "There Are No Speed Limits on the Audit Trail," to understand why I felt the need to embark on yet another journey of research and long hours of writing to share new lessons — and elaborate on still relevant ones from the first edition — with readers.
