Internal Audit reports are often viewed as a necessary evil to both auditors and management alike.  Communicating audit results is sometimes difficult, but it doesn’t have to be painful. Imagine business management actually requesting an audit report because they see the report as a welcomed tool that assists them with meeting their business objectives.  This course is designed to help auditors learn techniques to communicate risks, process deficiencies, and opportunities for improvement to management and other interested parties.  You’ll learn the elements of an audit observation, including elements most useful in selling observations to management.  Participants will learn how to apply the principles of effective report writing, including writing accurate, clear, complete, concise, timely, objective, and constructive reports.
