Tiistai 14.8 AUDITING GOVERNANCE, STRATEGIC RISKS AND PROJECTS  

Increasingly Internal Audit teams are being asked to look at new areas of risk. However, managers and even audit managers can sometimes wonder how can internal audit teams make a meaningful contribution to these sorts of risks.

This workshop will give you important skills and insights in the following areas:

  • How to assess which governance, strategic risks and projects may deserve audit attention
  • How to make a meaningful contribution in relation to governance (IIA standard 2110) – ways of breaking down the focus of audit work to address issues of importance, rather than just paperwork
  • How to look at risk management processes as well as specific risks (IIA standard 2120)
  • Looking at key projects and programmes – ranging from cost savings initiatives, to outsourcing to systems implementations

Participants will have the opportunity to benchmark their current approaches and have a practical understanding of sensible ways to tackle new risks with confidence.

Keskiviikko 15.8 EFFECTIVE SCOPING AND DEVELOPING HIGH QUALITY WORK PROGRAMMES THAT DELIVER INSIGHTS  

The new definition of internal auditing asks us to deliver insights? But what does this really mean and how do we deliver these on a timely basis in a practical way. The “engine room” that delivers these is having an effective assignment scope and a quality work programme that helps the audit team focus on what’s really important. But how often do we share the details of how we develop these work programmes and how can we be sure they will deliver real insights?

This workshop will give you important skills and insights in the following areas:

  • Making an effective link between the assignment plan and the audit plan and knowing when you need to ask more to get the right “exam questions” clear
  • Thinking about the types of assignment we can do process design review, healthchecks, audits and investigations and understanding key differences in the work programme
  • Learning how to create an effective library of re-usable work programmes that can then be tailored to specific assignment requirements, resulting in the benefit of high quality work plans that can be developed quickly.
  • Managing work programme execution, knowing when to stop and understanding how to effectively measure impact and get to action plans that address root causes and give insight

Participants will have the opportunity to benchmark their current approaches and be clear how to balance quality with productivity and delivery.

Torstai 16.8 STAKEHOLDER MANANGEMENT AND STRATEGIC INFLUENCING FOR INTERNAL AUDITORS  

Internal audit teams have a delicate balancing act to manage – offering both assurance as well as advice (and now insight). In theory, these offerings should be valued by all internal audits stakeholders, but in practice managers challenge the work and the opinions of internal auditors.

This workshop will explore the reasons for this resistance to what audit offers and help auditors understand how to better position themselves and their work. This workshop will explore some of the psychology of audit and the different things that stakeholders value – the “currency” they value – and help auditors develop a deeper understanding, and practical skills to help them get a “seat at the table.” This will include how to have effective stakeholder meetings, getting underneath management expectations and knowing how to balance between what is written and spoken.

We will discuss real “war stories” and practical examples as a way of bringing this important, but evolving subject to life, including the use of action learning techniques to help understand how to approach “high stakes” meetings effectively.
