Collaboration to Achieve Sustainable Results
We work collaboratively with clients and stakeholders to develop and implement effective solutions, optimize processes, and achieve your organizations' objectives within quality, cost, and schedule.
Synergy provides digital and agile internal audit capabilities and skills. Our certified personnel collaborate with your stakeholders to deliver an integrated, holistic approach and organization-wide Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) every time.
How do we partner to help our clients succeed?
Clients choose Synergy to develop sustainable solutions managing uncertainty, identify and mitigate emerging risks and the rapid pace of evolving risks, and adopt innovative value propositions (user-centered design) to address changing customer expectations quickly.
Tackling changing customer's and stakeholder's expectations creates complexities and unknown problems. Businesses big and small grapple with these challenges daily. Success and failures are often associated with intangibles such as optimal resources, collaboration amongst cross-functional teams, and a corporate culture dedicated to experimentation and continuous learning.
Our Internal Audit Value Chain (IAVC) methodology enables efficient collaborations across your value chain to unlock possibilities with a new way of thinking—how employees work, problems they solve, and a constant re-definition of value, to audit what matters, and when it matters.
Agile Internal Audit
As an integrator, we operate more like "Internal Management Consultants (IMC)" or a modified Internal Audit function, promptly demonstrating new capabilities. We maintain independence and play a pivotal role in supporting your strategy and mission priorities. We offer solutions addressing the rapid pace of emerging risk and evolving risks, acquire the skills and expertise to provide oversight, and proactively collaborate with your business units as their partner towards success.
Our Internal Audit Value Chain (IAVC) methodology provides flexibility and agility, and the execution is customized to align with your organization's strategy and mission priorities to meet challenges. The framework enables your CEO, C-Suite and Leadership teams, Board of Directors, and Program Managers to achieve goals by focusing on what matters. It also presents an excellent strategic approach to problem-solving that could significantly add value in the long term.
