  • Seminar Overview

    Have you ever communicated a recommendation only to discover the implemented recommendation didn’t resolve the problem? Do you feel like you identify symptoms of problems? Does your organization use the Band-Aid approach to correcting communicated audit findings? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you.
    While management should perform root cause analysis, they often don’t have the time and will simply implement a recommendation provided by the auditors. This means that auditors must complete a root cause analysis. However, identifying the root cause is hard and often overlooked by auditors. Moreover, the root cause may be politically sensitive when communicated by auditors.
    Who Should Attend:Internal auditors performing audits, communicating results, and making root cause analysis recommendations (NASBA Field of Study: Auditing).
