Internal audit has established some great traditions over the years. As Tevye, the character from Fiddler on the Roof said: “Traditions, traditions. Without our traditions our lives would be as shaky as… as a fiddler on the roof!” Later; however, Tevye realizes, “our old ways were once new, weren’t they?” We have to be willing to change with the times and create new traditions that provide more value to our organizations than the old ones.
