Blog: 10 Internal Audit Thought Leaders of the Decade

In his blog, IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, shares his personal reflections and insights on the internal audit profession. Here’s an excerpt from his latest post:

These last few weeks of the year, we are seeing a variety of Top 10 lists looking back over the decade. Not to be left out, I have one to share: My list of the Top 10 internal audit thought leaders of the decade.

As I started compiling this list a few days ago, I was struck by how many men and women were vocal and instructive in advancing the practice of internal audit around the world in the 2010s. The danger in compiling a list such as this is not in who gets included, but in offending an outstanding thought leader who might be left off. So, let me offer my apologies in advance.

My list is intended to acknowledge active contributions to advancing the profession through lectures, articles, publications, and social media over all or most of the past decade. There are several individuals who have made a remarkable emergence in very recent years. These include giants in the profession, such as Jenitha John, Nancy Haig, Hal Garyn, Dominique Vincenti, Patty Miller, Laura Soileau, and many others. The value they bring to the profession goes without saying, and I fully anticipate some or all of them on future Top 10 lists.
