ISACA Square Table: Reducing the deaf effect

Subtitle: Reducing the deaf effect for internal auditor messages on failing information systems projects: A music theory perspective


Square Table abstract

Information systems (IS) projects often get into trouble. When they do, internal auditors are often in a position to bring the problems to management’s attention. Unfortunately, managers are not always receptive to risk warnings, a phenomenon that is known as the deaf effect. In this presentation, I discuss whether concepts from music theory could advance our understanding of how internal auditors could become more effective in bringing their spoken message to managers’ attention.
