 Event Description 
 
Get ready...

...to earn 12 of your most valuable CPEs (MVCPEs perhaps?!) and show your organization your Internal Audit function is NOT going to do the same ol' thing in 2019.

Spend 50 minutes with me, 1 day of each month, and learn how a Total Quality Management (TQM) mindset can help Internal Audit add REAL value. And I’m not talking the same “add value” you have been trying to do for years. I am talking about REAL, TOTAL QUALITY value.

So WHAT is Total Quality Auditing?

Let me tell you.

TQA has 6 points of focus that start with the foundational aspects of organizational culture – Ethics and Standards of Conduct– and how Internal Audit can not only say they are “auditing culture” – but how they can lead the charge in shifting the culture at your organization. The points of focus continue by describing more effective ways of listening to and utilizing Customer Feedback (yes, you have customers too) and how to apply that feedback using truly Lean Techniques. And lastly, you will learn by Balancing Risk, Audit, and Consulting activities and by doing all of the above with unprecedented Leadership and Grit, you will earn more respect than you ever thought imaginable within your organization.

TQA, much like TQM, focuses on listening to customer needs, anticipating future problems and risks, and providing new quality approaches, process improvements, and strategic enhancements. We need to STOP managing our Internal Audit functions by fixing YESTERDAY’s problems. We need to show your leaders, your CFOs, and your CEOs, you are there to transform the future.

Be Proactive, not Reactive. This is the TQA Proposition.

So WHO am I?

Topic:  DATA VISUALIZATION FOR MANAGEMENT REPORTING

Visualizing data is critical for decision-making. Most of us have a difficult time understanding and drawing accurate conclusions from raw data. Being able to summarize data into a visually friendly and easily understandable format is vital for all organizations and especially for senior management. Good data reporting allows us to extrapolate trends, patterns and potential challenges easily and effectively. In this Data Visualization for Management Reporting course, we will explore the basic concepts and important considerations when developing reporting templates, discuss various reporting examples and how to avoid common distractions. This is an interactive course with open discussion and participation from the audience is desired.
