In this intensive, highly interactive two-day seminar we will review best practices in Internal Audit planning so that the work of the Internal Audit function is focused on the right areas. You will cover, in detail, how to develop a business focused, objective-based audit plan that will zero in on business issues of key importance and maximise the value of expended audit resources. Throughout the course, best practice will be shared alongside useful tools and techniques to help ensure that the IA plan is demonstrably focusing on the right areas. You will learn how to incorporate the organisation’s key data into the plan and, as a result, establish the audit strategy of the future. You will focus on designing a planning methodology that emphasises outcome rather than output. This course will enable you to focus on adding real value to the organization by creating a concrete annual audit plan which is totally business-focused.
