About this item
Bringing creativity and innovation into all professions and types of auditing today, this book meets the needs of auditing practices in the future. Recent criticisms of auditing practices by financial regulators, the traditional ‘expectation gaps’ between auditors and auditees and the continuing advances in technology make it even more important today to motivate creativity and innovation in the professions of auditors, be they internal, external, quality, environmental, social, clinical and so on.
In Creative and Innovative Auditing, Jeffrey Ridley studies all auditing practices, not just internal auditing, using an innovation model he has developed through research which is applicable to all auditing organisations and professions. He shows how motivating innovation in auditing practices will address the needs of today and tomorrow’s auditing of governance, risk management and control.
