Head of Internal Audit Survey 2014
The findings of our survey highlight the significant challenges faced in terms of expanding roles, emergence of new risks, greater stakeholder scrutiny, and resourcing pressures.
Our objective in carrying out this survey was to capture the key issues and challenges currently facing Heads of Internal Audit. In recent years we have seen increased demands placed on our profession by various stakeholders and many functions have seen operational changes to their remits and roles. The results reflect the responses from Heads of Internal Audit spanning a number of industries including financial services, consumer business, and the public sector.
The survey itself took a focussed approach across the 5Ps – Purpose, Position, Process, Performance, and People, and the results are aligned to these key areas. We hope you find this report both helpful and insightful in benchmarking your function and that it assists you in developing in order to meet increasing demands.
