Jamming with Jason Mefford
Moving from a CPE Mindset to Lifelong Learning

Moving from a CPE Mindset to Lifelong Learning

April 30, 2019

Many professionals get caught in a CPE mindset when it comes to professional development. A CPE mindset will not get you promotions or new positions. In the knowledge revolution, we have to become lifelong learners - those concerned with learning and growing each day, week, and month - not just completing hours of random CPE each year. Find out how to switch mindsets, increase your likelihood of having your training requests approved, and some questions you can ask yourself to be proactive with your learning opportunities.

Ineffective Controls - Case Study from a Large Bank

Ineffective Controls - Case Study from a Large Bank

April 23, 2019

As auditors we audit the effectiveness of controls and make recommendations for improving controls. If we are not careful, what we may actually do is recommend ineffective controls or try to over control our organizations, effectively strangling the organization and making it more difficult to achieve objectives. Here's a case study showing some ineffective and over control from one of the largest banks in the world that should know better. Makes me want to scream "give me a break."

The Future of Internal Audit and an Update to Sawyer’s Internal Auditing with Dan Clayton

The Future of Internal Audit and an Update to Sawyer’s Internal Auditing with Dan Clayton

April 16, 2019

Jason Mefford is joined by Dan Clayton, for a discussion of how internal audit is evolving and changing, driving some of the updates to Sawyer's Internal Auditing, 7th edition.

Information in the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), the Internal Audit textbook, and CIA Review Course materials, provide a basis for how to practice internal auditing, but Sawyer's Internal Auditing (one of the most influential books in the profession) fills in some of the gaps, and shows where internal audit is headed.

Dan Clayton is the Director of Strategy and Knowledge Management for the System Audit Office at The University of Texas System, and was the project leader for the update team to Sawyers Internal Auditing, 7th edition.

Companies Lag on Improving Risk Management and Climbing El Capitan with Joe McCafferty

Companies Lag on Improving Risk Management and Climbing El Capitan with Joe McCafferty

April 9, 2019

A recently released study from the AICPA and NC State show that despite the constant drumbeat for improving and formalizing risk management processes, most organizations are still way behind in their efforts. When 60% agree the volume and complexity or risk have changed extensively over the last five years, and 65% of boards are call for "somewhat" to "extensively" increasing managment involvement in risk oversight, why aren't more organizations on board with implementing ERM (only 34% have "mature" or "robust" oversight)? We'll unpack the results of the study, discuss some of the reasons and implications this has on organizations, internal audit, and how to use ERM as a strategic advantage.

Jason Mefford is joined by Joseph McCafferty, Editor & Publisher of Internal Audit 360 who recently reported on this study in an article. https://internalaudit360.com/

Internal Audit Must Embrace Change or Sink Like a Stone

Internal Audit Must Embrace Change or Sink Like a Stone

April 2, 2019

I spent the last several months interviewing many chief audit executives (CAEs) from all over the world to gain a better understanding of the current state of internal audit. What I found is that not only is the pace of change accelerating at an alarming rate, but along with the mounting challenges come plenty of opportunities too.

From these interviews, and my own experiences as a CAE at two organizations, I have identified some clear trends, challenges, and opportunities that most CAEs are working to address.
