Our research and insights are rooted in the challenges our members deem most important and span topics that impact your organization's day to day as well as longer-term strategic initiatives. We use relationships and learnings from the best CAEs to help you and your team save time and make better decisions.

The Changing Impact of Information

Our Latest Research

Confronting a fast-moving risk landscape, competing stakeholder demands, continued regulatory complexity and flat resourcing, Chief Audit Executives need to more effectively use the resources they have to provide assurance over the organization’s top risks and make sustained improvements in the organization’s risk management and control effectiveness.  CAEs see two ways to increase their business impact:

  1. Free up capacity in the audit plan to conduct more audits and focus these audits on higher-risk, higher impact areas of the business
  2. Deliver more impact in each audit engagement by getting audit staff to  deliver more business-relevant, actionable audit findings.

Learn how chief audit executives are either freeing up capacity in the audit plan to do more audits or increasing the output of individual audits.
