AN AUDIT OF STRATEGY - ADRIANA COAUTHORS AN ARTICLE FOR THE INTERNAL AUDITOR MAGAZINE
"Together with Matej Drašček and Gavin Lawrie, Adriana published an article on auditing strategy in the Internal Auditor Magazine. Despite the growing importance of strategy, internal auditors still lack the tools and methodologies to audit strategy development and implementation. The article talks about four steps that can help internal auditors ensure an effective strategic management process, the backbone of organizational success.
The article is currently accessible electronically to IIA members at https://iaonline.theiia.org/2019/Pages/An-Audit-of-Strategy.aspx."

A new article with my quote from Stanford Social Innovation Review.
Adriana conducted a workshop at the Sustainable Business Roundtable (SBRT) on April 21, 2016 at ESMT European School of Management and Technology in Berlin. She trained participants from leading European companies how to use methodologies and tools to measure social, environmental and economic impacts. What many believe to be unmeasurable is in fact possible to measure. There is a solid academic foundation for measuring sustainability performance. Social science, economic, and financial analysis techniques provide reasonable estimates for social, environmental, and economic performance.
