The latest project from The IIA Research Foundation shares career insights and the legacy of one of the profession’s own, Richard F. Chambers. Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail chronicles his career in internal auditing.

Chambers offers strong advice as he recounts the most defining moments in his distinguished career. His journey on the audit trail spans nearly 40 years with stops in both government and the corporate sector and, since 2009, as President and CEO of The Institute of Internal Auditors. In Lessons Learned on the Audit Trail, his first book release, Chambers shares many of the key events and insights gained during his impressive career, as well as valuable lessons he learned along the way.

Chambers imparts life-based lessons on such vital topics as the importance of:

  • Building and sustaining relationships with internal audit stakeholders
  • Demonstrating value
  • Deploying risk-based audit planning and the dynamic nature of risk
  • Achieving and sustaining a “seat at the table”
