When most people think about the audit of the future they think about robots. Now, I don’t know about you but when I think about robots and the future I think about people wearing white jumpsuits driving flying cars. In my mind, I see a mix of something like the Jetsons meets Tomorrow Land in Walt Disney World. Unfortunately, while all of this is very exciting, it’s not exactly what the audit of the future is going to look like. Instead, the audit of the future is going to look technical at first (so, there will be some robots), and then it will take a fast 180° and feel a lot more fluid than technical. Today, I want to talk about the first half of the audit of the future, the technical piece, and then next week dive into the less concrete, client relationship piece.
