​New CBOK Report Offers Top 7 Skills Sought by CAEs

The evolution of the internal audit profession toward a more value-added risk assurance function continues to advance. While technical skills are needed for day-to-day work, analytical/critical thinking and communication are personal skills that continue to be at the top of any chief audit executive’s (CAE’s) wish list. The latest report from the Global Internal Audit Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK) Practitioner Study, The Top 7 Skills CAEs Want: Building the Right Mix of Talent for Your Organization, discusses personal and technical skills CAEs are recruiting for in their audit departments. The report, written by James Rose, CIA, CRMA, GPA, CISA, gathers information from the survey to provide insights on building the right mix of talent for your organization. The report is available as a free download.
