Oversight of a corporation’s policies, procedures and practices. This oversight helps to ensure that the business is operated in the best interests of the corporation and its shareholders. The process of managing corporate governance is usually handled by a board of directors. The corporation may employ a staff of auditors to test and monitor internal controls. Be attuned to upcoming regulatory changes; advocate for mandatory internal audit in publicly traded companies; be aware of internal auditing’s expanding scope of work; invest in talent management; step out of your “comfort zones”.
