Skill needs challenge internal audit

Skill needs challenge internal audit | Digital Transformation - Resources for CPAs Navigating the Digital World | Scoop.it
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. 


This quote says it all,


“With the rapid pace of change, and so much of it technology-driven, it’s just not realistic that one group of people would have the right skills,” Trish Oelrich, CPA, audit committee chair at Pepco Holdings, said during a PwC webcast. “And an internal audit department that doesn’t constantly refresh with bringing new people in and rotating people out is going to have a bigger challenge with keeping that skill base up.”

Interesting view of CPAs in the Value-Creation age and the move from counting physical things to intangibles and value-creating things.

 

I like the "updated" definiotion of IC and the four components of 1) Human Capital, 2) Relationship Capital, 3) Structural Capital, and 4) Strategic Capital.

 

Also the links to Business as a Platform (HBR) and the "The Power of Pull" by John Seely-Brown.

 

And they missed the linkage to CPAs who have alrady developed significant thought in this area:

 

Reminds me of the CPA VIsion Project and the aspiration of CPAs to move up the value chain through a four-step process: 

 

1) Communicating the total picture with clarity and oibjectivity (This would add these intangibles);

2) Translating complex information into critical knowledge;

3) Anticpating and creating opportunities; and

4) Designing pathways that transform vision into reality.

 

This was develoed form a grassroots across the profession intitiative in 1998 (CPA VIsion Project) and reaffirmed in 2011 in the CPA Horizons 2025 Project. 

 

These same intangibles are also talked about extensively by Ron Baker in hos book, Mind Over Matter where he defines Intellectual Capital (IC) as three core elements: HC - Human Capital + SC - Structural Capital + SC - Social Capital.

Geoffrey Moore's Escape Velocity emphasizes how hard innoavtion really is and uses the idea of escaping the "pull of the past". 

 

This really resonated for me:

 

"Established enterprises struggle whenever they are required to reallocate resources away from established lines of business in order to fund the growth of new lines of business. The period of greatest pain is when the new business is big enough to demand a material amount of resource but not yet big enough to create a material return. Management teams are continually under pressure to raise the performance bar every quarter, and this makes it increasingly painful for them to invest in the future. But eventually this policy leads to a future state where the cupboard is bare and the company is in real trouble."

Are you a "Digital Leader?" Interesting take on leadership and one that hits home as I prepare for my favorite "personal learning journey" at the upcoming DigitalNow - Association Leadership Conferencein Orlando, FL next week.


I like the MIT Data-driven analysis of "digital leaders", "Our analysis found that they are 26% more profitable than their average industry competitors and enjoy a 12% higher market valuation. They generate 9% more revenue with their existing physical capacity and drive more efficiency in their existing products and processes."


Worth a read... and will be a major theme at our spring townhalls and escpecially our upcoming Innoavtion Summit on May17th in Baltimore.
