Session Topic:

Navigating Uncertainty: Insights from a Government Lens in 2024

In today's rapidly evolving governmental landscape, understanding and evaluating organisational culture is crucial. This presentation delves into practical approaches for governmental leaders to adeptly navigate cultural assessment, with a focus on how Internal Auditors can assist the government in this endeavour. It provides valuable insights into methodologies, risk identification, and the utilisation of technology to optimise audit efficiency within governmental bodies. By fostering ethical cultures and incorporating cultural insights into decision-making processes, governmental entities can fortify organisational resilience and enhance performance amidst uncertainty while remaining vigilant to fraud and corruption.
