1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

Throughout 2020, Internal Audit was forced to reprioritize, reschedule, and reorganize. This was often through an all-hands-on-deck period of stressful and long working hours. In turn, Agile rose back to the top of the agenda with many functions realizing to achieve longer-term resilience they need to embrace agility. Leveraging our recent global survey results, we’ll discuss:

  • The extent and nature of adoption of Agile across the globe
  • Benefits of Agile and barriers to adoption
  • Lessons learned for adoption (leadership, teams, and coaching)
