Modern internal audit functions have a key role in enabling organisations to deliver projects within cost targets, to the required quality and on time. On this course you will develop greater understanding of how the risk-based audit approach provides the opportunity to improve the organisation's delivery of projects.

Through evaluation of why projects do not achieve the desired outcome and what can be done to avoid common mistakes in project delivery, this course practically demonstrates how internal auditors are able to employ a risk-based audit approach at every stage of the project to support success.

This course will also cover a range of key projects, common in the majority of organisations, to provide deeper understanding of how to approach auditing these projects in a practical and cost-effective way.

The exercises and activities will be practical in nature and predominantly based on real-life case studies or situations. In addition, there will be opportunity to discuss existing project concerns in a safe and professional environment.
