Erich Schumann, managing partner at Global Atlantic Partners, will present an e-learning seminar on developing a strategic plan for internal audit on April 10, 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET.
Entitled “Guidance Briefing: Developing the Internal Audit Strategic Plan,” the online seminar will be offered through The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and qualifies as one hour of CPE credit for participants.
The presentation will help participants better understand best practices in strategic planning for internal audit. “For internal audit to remain relevant, it must adapt to changing expectations and maintain alignment with organizational objectives,” says Mr. Schumann. “The internal audit strategy is fundamental to remaining relevant — playing an important role in achieving a balance between cost and value, while making meaningful contributions to the organization’s overall governance, risk management, and internal controls. A systematic and structured process can be used to develop the internal audit strategic plan, helping to enable the internal audit activity to achieve its vision and mission.”
