Improving Your Audit Reports & Delivering Added Value

Category: Improving Your Audit Reports & Delivering Added Value

Course Description

Writing effective audit reports must be the most important aspect of the Internal Audit process. It is the main deliverable and the only written information audit customers receive. The risk-based focus being increasingly adopted is universally accepted as the new benchmark for Internal Audit. The flip side of risk however, is opportunity.

Specifically targeting significant areas of business opportunities in the audit programme can deliver major measurable benefits to the organisation whilst at the same time reducing the associated risks.

This five-day course is designed to challenge your thinking about the whole approach to writing and reviewing audit reports and to understand the benefits of a focussed VFM audit process and how to effectively measure the value added.
