About the Course
Audit Reports can significantly loose their effectiveness if not written professionally with a focused purpose. Communication for the auditor is a fine art and once perfected can take on more importance than the audit itself. One of the primary responsibilities of the internal audit function is to communicate the need for the audited area to change, based upon an assessment of risk and controls. Persuasive communication is an essential skill for all auditors. Each internal audit activity carries with it the need to objectively communicate and operate within the elements of change. The auditor's communication skills start with an understanding of the objectives of the audit stakeholders. The auditor must use both oral and written communications to move the organization to more effectively manage all relevant risks.
Auditors will come out of this training with better oral and written communication skills. The presentation covers all types and levels of internal audit reporting. By participating in this course, auditors in all sectors and at all levels will learn the components of communicating an effective audit finding. You will learn how to organize reports that meet professional standards, elicit management action, and communicate crucial, strategic messages to executives and board-level readers.
