Dispatches From GAM 2019 Event
The Institute of Internal Auditors held its 2019 General Audit Management conference in Dallas this week, bringing together hundreds of corporate audit chiefs to talk about the latest trends in their profession. We couldn’t attend ourselves, so here is a smattering of posts from GAM on social media to keep you briefed on what was said there.
Not sure I agree with this point, but not sure that I disagree, either. Many organizations now do this, some even with sincere ambition for better risk assurance rather than cost-cutting. So, hmmm.

So true. The crucial ingredient for change is employees’ understanding that they can try, fail, and try again without punishment from the boss.
In a world where we are balancing b/t a hierarchical & a network structure, we must say to our teams “You are safe. You are free.” This opens up the discussion to new, out-of-the-box, future thinking ideas. @sethmattison #IIAGAM

If internal audit can move away from tasks and toward insight, it will be better off. If it can evolve, it will not only remain relevant, it will become a strategic partner. – Brian Foster, Microsoft #iiagam pic.twitter.com/x1FePfrMAM

Should also give team members free subscription to Radical Compliance.
Forty hours of training isn’t enough to keep up with disruptive technologies. Audit departments are having staff get 100 hours of training per year to stay current. Great session at #IIAGAM. #gamlivestream
