Internal audit transformation: a heightened need to be proactive

"Organizations have, as a result of sheer necessity, made decisions quicker, collaborated better, adopted new technologies faster…the challenge now is to sustain those improvements over the long term. Defining a clear strategy for the future of work will be critical, with a focus on strengthening internal trust."
- Nhlamu Dlomu, Global Head of People, KPMG International


Transforming internal audit to establish trust

KPMG helped a leading business market intelligence and technology leader promote a more meaningful risk dialogue

This company wanted to better understand the risks across its systems, processes, and procedures. KPMG helped them re-structure their internal audit program, use agile concepts, and add technology, data analytics, and new ways of working. As a result, the company achieved a more meaningful dialogue about risk and risk responses. And internal audit’s stakeholders gained a stronger sense of trust with the process and clarity into the value internal audit provides.
