The world of internal auditing in the 21st century can be exhilarating, rewarding, nerve-wracking, exciting, and downright terrifying at times. The challenges that organizations face today make providing independent assurance to enhance organizational value anything but dull.
The foundation that will enable us to navigate the changes to come is the International Professional Practices Framework generally and the Core Principles for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing specifically. No matter what changes may impact the profession, we must stand on principles. We should never lose sight of the fundamental beliefs that drive our profession and our practitioners.
The recently published IIA Practice Guide ”Demonstrating the Core Principles for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing” provides excellent direction on embracing and demonstrating those Core Principles in all aspects of our professional lives.
