Future-proofing: Reinventing internal audit and changing mind-sets. The RSA INSURANCE experience.
Ralph will share his experience of developing a radically different, fully agile and forward thinking internal audit function. In a world where change and disruption are becoming the norm, RSA Internal Audit disrupted themselves and embraced innovation. Led by an ambition to become the best function to be from, they searched well beyond the audit profession and took ideas and inspiration from leading organisations, such as Google’s people practices, Spotify’s agile culture, and Pixar’s approach to innovation. The result is a function that is highly relevant and impactful in its organisation and prepared for the future, regardless of what disruption that future may bring. In 2017, RSA Internal Audit received industry awards for Outstanding Team – Financial Services, and Best Innovation in Learning and Development. An early version of RSA’s journey was published in the December 2017 edition of the Internal Auditor Magazine.
