Better, Faster, Cheaper: Streamlining Your Internal Audit: Preliminary Planning and Scheduling
Better, Faster, Cheaper: Streamlining Your Internal Audit: Preliminary Planning and Scheduling Overview
An effective audit will produce the desired or intended result. It is built on a broad and deep assessment of an area, process, or system. It “begins with the end in mind” and creates a meaningful plan an auditor or audit team will follow. An efficient audit is one where we work productively with minimum wasted effort or expense. Audit leadership sets in motion themes and expectations based on risk assessment and communication with stakeholders inside and outside internal audit. Effective auditing means having a firm grasp of the scope, budget, resources, personnel, and timeline dedicated to a project. Auditors need to be able to manage unplanned issues while moving forward on audit goals and tasks in progress. An efficient audit requires focus and discipline to stay the course. This course explains and provides examples of who, what, why, and how to structure and manage a more in-depth and meaningful process and produce great results for both the client and auditor. This course focuses on the triple threat of infrastructure, schedules and resources, adopting agile principles, drawing outlines of the audit project, project roles, the elements of skill and will, communication protocols, and first phase cornerstones. Who Should Attend Internal Auditors, Compliance Experts, and leaders in Internal Audit departments. CPE: 4
