Understanding risk-based audit approach to improve an organisation's projects delivery

Why Attend?

Modern Internal Audit functions have a key role in enabling organizations to deliver projects within cost targets, to the required quality and on time. You will develop greater understanding of how the risk-based audit approach provides the opportunity to improve the organization'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 organizations, to provide deeper understanding of how to approach auditing these projects in a practical and cost-effective way. In addition, there will be the opportunity to discuss existing project concerns in a safe and professional environment.
