In Risk Based Integrated AuditingTM, Internal Audit’s management team takes on a new role and responsibilities to build effective working relationships with their assigned organization executives. This new role is known as the “Business Function Audit Executive”. Audit executives are involved in the risk assessment process at the high level (with their audit customers) and at the low level (with their audit team).

“Liz Meyers’ presentation on ‘Risk Based Management’ was one of the simplest and most effective sessions I have attended in my 30-plus years as a professional (12 of those as a project manager). Her concepts and definitions of ‘risks’ and ‘controls’ gave me immediate take-a-ways I was able to use the very next day at work. I highly recommend this session to not only project managers, but all levels of management to help them take their skill set to the next level.”
