Six Sigma for Auditors
Six Sigma for Auditors - Ken Ramaley (8 CPE)

This Introduction to Six Sigma for Auditors workshop provides a hands-on opportunity for auditors to learn and apply Six Sigma tools to their existing audit work. Six Sigma tools enable quantitative approaches to scoping, planning, testing, and continuous monitoring of risk. Participants will gain a broad understanding of several essential Six Sigma tools, as well as an effective manner to present their quantitatively supported findings in the context of audit work. This session is highly practical, focused on tool application and interpretation. The facilitator, Ken Ramaley, is an experienced Six Sigma Master Black Belt and a Certified Internal Auditor. Ken holds a US Patent for advanced statistical sampling methodologies based on Six Sigma principles.

This workshop has no pre-requisites and is intended for those with little to no practical experience in executing Six Sigma audit practices. Auditors who have background in Six Sigma process improvement will still find it useful as the workshop focuses on appropriation of Six Sigma tools in performing audit work, rather than on Six Sigma process improvement methodology per se.
