Do you audit first and worry about the report at the end of the project? Maybe you’ve realized that no amount of editing will fix a report for an audit that went off the rails. In this course, we will look at the critical components of an audit report and how to create them – as you audit – so that the reporting process is easy.  Frequent references to audit standards will keep us grounded.

Course objectives include:

  • Sort out insignificant complaints and focus on significant risks
  • Create convincing, implementable and auditable recommendations
  • Generate concise and logical findings in an hour or less
  • Choose methodologies that support conclusions and findings
  • Choose the strongest content for your finding
  • Decide how much detail to share in the report
  • Quantify findings
  • Recognize dangerous tone and language
  • Establish expectations and guidelines for creating a compelling  finding
  • Decide when to pursue the root cause
  • Focusing the report conclusion on a finite, answerable objective
  • Refine the objective and sub-objectives

Program level: Intermediate

Instructional method: Group live instruction

Prerequisites: More than one year of audit experience

Who should attend: Auditors who write or review audit reports

Recommended CPE credit: 16 hours

 

Audit Planning and Risk Assessment

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THIS SEMINAR

“I have been ranting and raving to my peers, family and friends about your seminar… you had me on the edge of my seat just absorbing all the information you covered! Anyone that can teach [auditing]… in such a fun, exciting and upbeat way… deserves more than just KUDOS. I am already looking into other seminars you teach.”

The ultimate impact of your audit report often depends on how you start out. A thorough planning process is key to creating compelling results.

  • Apply the 2013 version of the COSO model to your control risk assessment
