Program: "Internal Audit Transformation to Agile"

Information and Registration

Change Velocity is one of the “5 C’s of Risk” which should be keeping Internal Auditors awake at night (according to Richard Chambers’ new book:  The Speed of Risk).   One way to keep up with the fast pace of change is to adopt an “Agile” approach to internal auditing.  Agile is (by definition) the ability to create and respond to change.  

Agile methodologies have been used in IT organizations for years for software development.  The hallmark of Agile approaches are adaptability and collaboration, both benefits which can be transferred to Internal Audit processes as well.

In this session, we will provide a brief overview of Agile concepts and terminology and then share how moving to an Agile approach helped Schlumberger’s Internal Audit Department.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn the basics concepts of Agile
  • Learn new terminology related to Scrum (An Agile Methodology)
  • Understand how to apply an Agile methodology to an Audit Process / Project

    Program: "How Emotional Intelligence Can Lead You to Success In Your Career"
  • Cecilia Rose, MCC, Next Door Strategies

    Information and Registration

    “No doubt emotional intelligence is rarer than book smarts, but my experience says it is actually more important in the making of a leader. You just can't ignore it.”  ~ Jack Welch

    Emotional intelligence is not new to the business. I have been speaking on Emotional Intelligence for over two decades, I was a voice in the wilderness. Change takes time, and the wheels of the gods grind exceedingly slow. It was in the 1930s that it was first noted as Social Intelligence and wasn’t until 1985 that the term ‘Emotional Intelligence’ was coined by Wayne Payne in his doctoral dissertation. It takes time to bring something to the forefront.

    Emotional Intelligence has become the most desired skill set in the workplace as we are called to collaborate more and more. You see when we are not allowed to take our emotions to work everyone loses, we lose, our colleagues lose, our customers and clients lose, and the company loses. Without our emotions we leave behind our creativity, passion, ability to innovate, to envision, to inspire others with our originality and enthusiasm, yes, everyone loses. Our emotions compel us to take action, to engage, to connect, and they influence the decisions we make each day, and every day, in each moment, in both big ways and small ways.

    Emotional Intelligence is the starting point for success in our complex organizations, no matter your title, your tenure or what your position is in the company. How we feel and our ever-fluctuating moods have a profound impact on our thoughts and actions, so understanding ourselves and others allow us to build healthier, more productive relationships. And, as we all know, relationships are at the heart of any organization’s culture.

    Remember: IQ gets you hired and EQ gets you promoted.

    Program: "Initiation Phase in Engineering & Manufacturing Product Development Process"
  • Mark Sherman, Schlumberger

    Information and Registration

    The early phase of project stakeholders and project teams are typically in good spirits.  This phase is critical.  Most project managers know what is the ideal or textbook items to focus on.  The real world is a bit different where project realities and pressure sets.  These stages are all too easy to gloss over or completely skip.  Poor implementation of these early items often leads to non-optimal solutions down the line and reducing the satisfaction of stakeholders, moral of the project team, and reduced value to the company.

    This talk will remind the importance of the key early things, help manage the softer sides of project management, assist in setting the mind at this stage, and give the courage and tips to get the time needed to do the right thing at these stages.  The talk is particularly important for projects with unknown solutions and projects that are difficult or expensive to rework. The thought process works the same for quicker iteration agile projects as well.  The miniature projects that we all do daily benefit as well.

    Your secret sauce. Which users should have access to your secret sauce? How do you know it's really them? How well do they take of care their identity? What device are they using? Where are they connecting from? How can you answer all of these questions with a fair amount of certainty, protect your sauce and not drive users crazy in the process.

    The answer is through Adaptive Authentication. In this session you'll get a basic understanding of Adaptive Authentication and how Microsoft makes it available through Conditional Access. You'll also learn why Adaptive Authentication is a necessity for implementing any flavor of Zero Trust.
