Learn the Tips and Tools to Create Impactful Audit Reports
Audit reports have to include the four elements of a finding—criteria, condition, cause, and effect—plus perhaps a fifth element, the recommendation. While including these standards may meet the minimum requirements for reporting, this boilerplate approach to writing can stifle independent critical thinking and even undermine the entire audit process, tarnishing your credibility as an auditor.
Take your audit reports beyond the ordinary by aligning what is experienced during the review process with what is composed during the writing process. In this webinar, author and administrative trainer Philip Vassallo shows you how to massively improve the quality of your audit reports, as he illustrates each element of an audit checklist, shows you how to determine the root cause, and organize your audit content based on time-tested principles. Find out how focusing on simple syntax (word order) and diction (word choice) will help you avoid the numerous pitfalls that can compromise the integrity and objectivity of your audit report. Explore examples from different auditing disciplines, and learn useful tips and tricks to overcome roadblocks and think clearly.
Sign up for this webinar and learn how to determine the factors affecting the validity and reliability of a finding, how to assess the appropriate level of detail, and how to create a department-specific template to facilitate the writing process. You’ll also learn how to draft work papers based on objective observations, how to employ formatting devices to improve the visual appearance of an audit report, and how to choose a fluent sentence structure to illuminate your ideas.
