CAE Strategic Relationships: Building Rapport with the Executive Suite
Chief audit executives (CAEs) intuitively know that building bridges with the executive suite is critical for performance effectiveness. This insightful collection of case studies shows CAEs how to build and leverage their relationship with the executive suite for better organizational outcomes.
This report uses the relational coordination framework to uncover the core elements of successful business relationships for CAEs and their executive suite counterparts. Candid observations from CAEs and CEOs at large organizations in the United States and Europe reveal how to:
- Create shared goals about internal audit’s role and priorities.
- Build shared knowledge about the organization and internal audit’s role.
- Establish mutual respect for internal audit capabilities and leadership.
- Enable high-quality communication that anticipates and responds to organizational imperatives.
