Cincinnati IIA Three CPE Days

Critical Thinking Skills for Auditors One Day Course Overview

The obvious answer isn’t always the right answer. The surface is often just the tip of the iceberg. Sometimes, it is the little hints that we miss that could be the key to identifying problems and making process improvements.

  • Do you want to improve learn to look past the obvious answers?
  • Do you want to attain a higher level of thinking?
  • Do you want your brain to work more efficiently to solving problems?
  • Do you want to be more creative and innovative?
  • Do you want to recognize more opportunities, avoid mistakes and make decisions faster?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you.

Internal Auditors have the responsibility of looking at business processes objectively and delivering results timely. By applying critical thinking methods to analyzing information, looking at data, evaluating objectives and risks, and observations, you will be in a better position to provide creative, innovative, timely results.

This course is designed for managers and their teams who collaborate on resolving issues. Individual contributors will also study examples to improve individual critical thinking skills using current issues facing the attendee. This course teaches the tools and techniques used in critical thinking methods and opportunities to apply the methods, tools, and techniques to daily audit work.

Root Cause Analysis for Auditors Two Day Course Overview

Have you even 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.

Root cause analysis is a process to identify and resolve the root cause behind problems to prevent recurring failures. As part of the audit process, root cause analysis is an essential element of communicating findings and determining the corrective actions.


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.


This workshop is designed for auditors and managers who want to resolve problems once and for all. Attendees will perform a root cause analysis on a problem they are currently facing using proven root cause analysis tools and techniques.

The Cincinnati Chapter of the IIA was established in 1949 and currently has almost 600 members encompassing the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area.  We have been a Platinum Chapter since 2010.

The chapter provides training, education, and networking opportunities to internal audit professionals via our monthly meetings which are typically held the second Tuesday of every month (Sept - May).  Since our membership is located across a large region, the venues may be in downtown Cincinnati, in one of the many suburbs, or held at a sponsoring corporation.  We offer a two-day seminar at least annually and in March have a full day of training all designed for the internal audit profession.

Besides growing your education with the Chapter, our meetings are casual so that you can meet and network with others in the internal audit profession.  There are also ample ways to volunteer with the Cincinnati Chapter which will heighten your leadership skills and give you the opportunity to work with many Chapter members as well as the local community.

If you would like to become a member, learn more, or join the leadership team of the IIA Cincinnati Chapter, please contact us.
