Agile Auditing - Raven Catlin, 8 CPE


Raven Catlin.jpgThe buzz-word in Internal Audit today is Agile Auditing. Agile Auditing is more than a mindset. Internal Audit processes today aren’t much different than they were 20 years ago. Internal Auditing of the future requires different tools and different methods of approach. Agile Auditing is a tool for auditors to use to complete audits on time that leverages risk based auditing and a par​ticipative audit approach. Agile is quickly becoming the go to method / approach to build efficient audit teams, create collaborative relationships with audit clients and deliver results timely. Through Agile AuditingTM you will improve audit delivery time, give better customer service, solve corporate problems and issues faster, and reduce delays, rework and waste. In this course, you will be taught how to implement an Agile Audit by a pioneer and leading trainer in Agile Auditing.​​​​​
