"Clarissa Lucas' book Beyond Agile Auditing challenges the status quo and the conventional wisdom of internal auditing. She rightfully demands a mindset shift, suggesting internal auditors should collaborate with clients more effectively and more efficiently when rendering truly value-adding outcomes. Her wealth of ideas can help practitioners to audit 'at the speed of risk' (as suggested by Richard Chambers and Norman Marks). "

--Dr. Rainer Lenz, QIAL, CIA, CIIA, CEFA, Chief Audit Executive at SAF-HOLLAND Group

Beyond Agile Auditing shows auditors and organizational leaders how to revolutionize the audit experience. For decades, auditors have unintentionally struck fear in their clients. They are rarely welcomed into an area with open arms and are often viewed as one more obstacle to delivering value. But internal audit serves a vital function in reducing risk and ensuring success for all organizations.

In Beyond Agile Auditing, experienced audit and risk management leader Clarissa Lucas shows organizations how to go beyond collaboration and build a partnership between auditors and clients. By leveraging this partnership, organizations can experience more value-added audit work, faster time to results (and resolution), greater engagement and satisfaction from all parties involved, and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace,

By building upon the work of the DevOps community, which reinvented the relationship between two groups that historically saw each other as adversaries and obstacles, Lucas applies new and better ways of working to the audit process. In this reimagined world, auditors (as well as other assurance providers) work closely with their clients to become strategic differentiators instead of obstacles, providing stakeholders value they never imagined. Come join us in this brave new world of audit.

"Beyond Agile Auditing provides a fresh, innovative, yet perfectly logical approach to auditing (with agility). I appreciate Clarissa's challenge to think differently, through her own stories of obstacles encountered and successes obtained. My curiosity is piqued, and I can't wait to try out some of these concepts. Thank you for offering a more flexible, collaborative, and value-driven viewpoint."

--Pam Pesta, Chief Audit Executive, Erie Insurance
