Focus and Features:

Internal Auditors have an admirable story to tell, one that deserves to be told often and in the right places. Through reports internal auditors have an opportunity to get management’s complete attention. That is how auditors should regard reporting–as an opportunity, not dreary drudgery–a perfect occasion to show management how auditors can help and add value to the organization.

Much too often, auditors clearly throw away this golden chance to open management what they have accomplished and what they can accomplish, to explain what management needs to know and what it needs to know. Therefore internal auditors should regard reports in the same light that a salesman regards an opportunity to present his or her products: an opening for a well–rehearsed, well–tested, well–conceived presentation.

In this course, participants will learn and apply skills in writing effective audit reports through team exercises, group discussions, case studies and lectures.

After completion:

  • Participants shall learn and apply skills in writing effective audit reports.
  • Participants shall learn and apply the guidelines and techniques, and use examples to choose the appropriate substance, organization, tone and style of each report
