Seminar objectives:

Internal audit teams are increasingly confronted with volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). Increasing the adaptability of an internal audit team is a sustainable answer to these challenges. The scientifically validated Adaptability Quotient (AQ) allows to objectively measure and increase the adaptability of internal auditors and internal audit teams.

This leadership seminar has the following learning objectives:

  • Understanding the importance of adaptability, agility, and learning aptitude
  • Interpreting the 16 scientifically validated measures of adaptability
  • Measuring the adaptability quotient (AQ) of one’s own internal audit team and evaluating the results at the individual and team level
  • Deducing individual action points to increase team adaptability

The course will be conducted in two half-days with a break between to give enough time for the online assessments of the adaptability quotient (AQ) of the internal audit team. The online assessments for performing the test can be purchased at a reduced price of CHF 40 per unit.
