The course will focus on how Agile Internal Audit can be implemented in an organisation followed by sessions to work through how exactly agile works at each stage of the audit process. This course will use real-world examples and case studies based on the trainer’s extensive experience of introducing agile auditing techniques to a range of organisations.
The course will explain the different concepts introduced when implementing agile to internal audit. The benefits and challenges will be examined from the perspective of experiences of the course delegates, and these will be evaluated based in the lessons learned by
organisations who have already taken steps to implement agile internal audit techniques.
Delegates will have time to practically examine the different elements of agile auditing techniques and assess what is needed to make internal audit departments agile. By the end of this course, delegates will fully understand the steps involved in an agile internal audit and how this can work in their own organisation.
