Advancing Organizational Governance: Internal Audit’s Role
By: P. Dean Bahrman, CIA

Add value to your organisation by taking a lead role in advancing governance. This book gives you the tools you need and serves as an indispensable guide for internal auditors and others charged with advancing organisational governance.

This book was written to complement the recently published handbook, Evaluating and Improving Organizational Governance.

Governance, which includes the important subsets of risk, control, and compliance, is the “space” in which internal audit plays. There are tremendous opportunities for internal auditors to add value to their respective organisations through work they can perform in advancing organisational practices.

Author Dean Bahrman provides “how to” guidance and tools on:

  • Internal audit’s role in providing assurance design and operating effectiveness
  • Key risks and audit steps to take when gathering evidence
  • Using capability maturity models
  • Managing risk
  • Other roles internal audit may fill
  • Helpful appendices and suggested further readings are also included.

The primary audience for this book is internal audit management. Board/audit committee members with internal audit oversight, executive management, other governance practitioners, academia, and individuals charged with advancing organisational governance in all types and sizes of organisations will also find this book useful.
