The risk-based focus being increasingly adopted is universally accepted as the new benchmark for Internal Audit.
The flip side of risk, however, is opportunity. Specifically targeting significant areas of business opportunities can deliver major measurable benefits to the organisation whilst at the same time reducing the associated risks. This is particularly true if the areas of the business targeted are those which are often overlooked by management. With budgets under even greater scrutiny, demonstrating value for money is more important than ever.
This course will benefit auditors in all business sectors. It will provide the basis for a subtle but hugely powerful shift in the focus of Internal Audit towards a much more value-adding approach. It will provide the tools and techniques to develop and deliver an opportunity-focused plan and deliver measurable value.
