The Code of Ethics of the Institute of Internal Auditors holds the principles of integrity, objectivity, confidentiality, and competency as the cornerstones of credible internal audits. Auditors can find abundant resources to ensure that their audit process meets those standards consistent with regulatory reporting and that they represent the auditee’s best interests. However, certifying compliance does not occur merely at the point of observation but in the writing that emerges from it. Numerous challenges lie ahead for auditors when composing an internal audit report. They want to ensure that they clearly articulate a comprehensive review process, valid and reliable criteria, conditions logically linked to causes, relevant and risks, and beneficial recommendations—all with an objective style.
Why Should You Attend:
The art of audit report writing demands far more than simply listing the four elements of a finding –criteria, condition, cause, and effect. (Even adding the fifth element, the recommendation, may be insufficient.) This boilerplate approach to writing can threaten independent, critical thinking and undermine the entire audit process, ultimately tarnishing the credibility of the auditor. Skilled auditors require a method that aligns what they experienced during the reviewing process with what they compose during the writing process.
This highly specialized webinar offers a deep and useful toolbox of techniques that auditors can use when noting audit observations, drafting objective work papers, and composing well-structured, detailed, and fluent audit reports. The program begins with a case study to illustrate each element of an audit checklist with a close focus on objective reporting. It then uncovers problems of ensuring validity and reliability of findings and determining root cause. The webinar then drills down to a deeper level to organize audit content based on time-tested principles of structure. The rest of the session covers the two pillars of writing style: syntax (word order) and diction (word choice)—each of which poses numerous pitfalls that can compromise the integrity and objectivity of an audit report. Reviewing understandable, pertinent examples from various auditing disciplines, you will learn how to remedy the greatest roadblocks to clear thinking through writing and cultivate a convincing, authoritative style. You will leave this webinar with excellent resources that you can continually turn to during intense, complex audit engagements.
