Training Overview

Most Heads of Internal Audit would say that their functions have adopted a risk-based approach. Why then is Internal Audit often seen as negative and unhelpful, a function that points out errors and focusses on finding fault? Is it because it focusses mainly on failure rather than success. Changing this mind set is the biggest challenge for the audit function. This highly-interactive course will show you how to deliver measurable benefits to your business by :
• Focusing audit attention on key business activities which are often not reviewed
• Targeting areas of opportunity and added value
• Making suggestions for reducing controls for over-managed risks
• Delivering a future focussed process
• Being seen as a success driver and a catalyst for positive change
