Conflict Management and Negotiation Skills for Internal Auditors

Member Price : Php 4,700.00

The goals for this book are twofold: to increase your understanding of how people think and act (including yourself), and to give a tremendous number of tips, practices, suggestions, ideas and skills that you may use appropriately to increase your relationship and get better audit results with your customers and clients, wherever they may reside.

This book represents the results of more than 20 years working as a private consultant and trainer to the audit profession. What started as a small program based on the best research on conflict management and negotiation skills has slowly evolved into a book based on research on these two topics, plus the real-life experiences of thousands of auditors who deal with conflicts, potential conflicts, and differing positions that need to be united on a daily basis. The book is designed to give both clarity into human nature as well as practical skills and suggestions for dealing with people in a wide range of challenging situations.

Bribery: Identify Hidden Risks in Your Organization

Member Price: Php 2,800.00

Bribery is often covert, tricky to prevent, and notoriously tough to uncover. Forensic accountants and fraud-focused auditors are often successful at detecting bribes, but it is difficult for generalist internal auditors to find such transactions through regular auditing techniques. Fortunately, many anti-bribery controls are also internal controls for sound, general practices.

This book offers practical information and advice on:

  • Third-party bribery
  • Legislative and regulatory considerations
  • Channels through which bribes may be made, concealed, or prevented
  • Anti-bribery controls over an organization’s expenditure, revenue, assets, and liabilities
  • Organizational whistleblowing hotlines
  • Anti-corruption compliance programs

Fraud detection is not normally the primary purpose of internal auditing, yet it is an important subject that cannot be ignored. Internal auditors’ advice and recommendations can encourage management to introduce and maintain strong internal controls over bribery risks.
