Leading the Internal Audit Function (Hardcover) (Lynn Fountain)
about this item
Books on internal audit deal with leading practice concepts and IIA standards. The challenge comes when dealing with management, trying to balance independence and objectivity while also being an employee of the company. Many CAEs become complacent in the requirements of skepticism and objectivity because of push back received from management. And although SOX raised the profile of IA, Audit Committees and management are still unaware of the IIA standards and guidelines. This book uses the practical realities and lessons learned as a CAE to apply real life concepts to the challenges of managing an IA department, gaining Audit Committee support and become a valued member of the team.
