innovation doesn’t happen in the comfort zone. It happens when you understand how much you’re going to have to grow and transform in order to not keep up with disruptive change, but to anticipate it. The key thing is for your company to understand that innovation is uncomfortable because it’s new, not because it’s bad.
Tom Hood's insight:
Great insights from Dan! We can choose courage or (temporary) comfort. Be the disruptor or disrupted.. I think I will choose the former...

Complexity and the rapid pace of change is challenging internal auditors to keep their skill sets current even as they try to expand the value they bring to their companies.
Tom Hood's insight:
This is all about keeping your L>C and the effects of technology on our Profession. It's about being systematic and strategic about learning and developing your people. We think about it as the 5 C's: 1) Context and attunement to the environment; 2) Competencies for the future; 3) Curriculum - building a curriculum that crosses all levels and builds on prior levels; 4) Career paths that communicate how to advance in the organization; 5) Content - quality training to put in the curriculum.

Too many companies are approaching their digital transformation from a technology perspective. But at the heart, digital transformation is the story of how people are changing. Whether we realize it or not, the way customers and employees make decisions, the technology they use, and how preferences and expectations evolve or detour, are stories for us to discover. These are the insights that guide the transformation. Technology adoption is not the solution: it is merely an enabler for transformation. It takes vision to make the change.
Tom Hood's insight:
Churchill once said, "We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." I think the modern version of this is behind this idea of 'digital transformation' we are all in the midst of.

While many are skeptical, I have hope. Hope that this digital transformation will be 'and' not 'or' - high tech and high touch, physical and virtual and the result being a more human workplace...
