Team Leader's Guide to Internal Audit Leadership


The role of team leaders is being reshaped at a relatively rapid pace to accommodate the recognition of chief audit executives (CAEs) as trusted advisors within the C-suite. This book helps them transition to a higher level by providing practical, meaningful ideas to optimize internal audit’s value proposition through attuned, balanced, and credible day-to-day audit engagement activities.

While there is useful guidance available for CAEs, there is a gap in the practical guidance available specifically for team leaders as they assume a broader role in support of their CAEs. This book provides that practical guidance.
