Since launching my website in 2021, I have been extremely gratified at the response by internal auditors and others around the world. A main feature of Audit Beacon is my blog, which I have been doing regularly for almost 15 years now. This year, I was wowed to learn that the blog had been read more than 200,000 times since January!
It always fascinates me to see how the most popular posts are those that connect the dots between the concerns and priorities of readers and, by extension, the internal audit profession. This year was no exception.
Readers gravitated toward subjects that helped them navigate complex stakeholder relationships, sustain and enhance the stature of their internal audit functions, forge their own career strategies, and future-proof their ability to serve their organization.
With those themes in mind, here are my top blog posts for 2023:
Those are the blog posts that resonated the most with you, my readers, in 2023. I hope you benefited from and enjoyed reading them as much as I did putting them together.
It is ever-present in my mind that the job of modern internal auditors is complex, challenging, sometimes dangerous, and too often undervalued. This is why I try to make sure every one of my blog posts contains useful information for internal auditors in the field. These top posts, based on their large readership, reflect an eagerness by those who seek to expand their knowledge of the profession and to improve their service to their organizations. That gives me great comfort about the profession and its future.
As always, I look forward to your comments via email to email@example.com or “X” (formerly known as Twitter).
