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 deficiencies?

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. However, conducting a thorough root cause analysis (RCA) presents many challenges:

1.     To conduct a thorough RCA requires time, resources, and some essential skills, including emotional intelligence, relationship building, communication, analytical, and critical thinking.

2.     Process owners, management, and auditors engaging in Root Cause Analysis often find identifying the root cause is hard especially when you don’t have the right tools and methods to perform the RCA.

3.     The root cause may be politically sensitive and not communicated.

This workshop is designed to help you overcome the above challenges. Participants of this workshop will be able to apply the needed skills, tools, and methods to conduct a root cause analysis for the most important problems. Through hands on practice with a problem you are currently facing, you will apply proven root cause analysis tools and techniques to identify the cause. Moreover, participants will also be able to communicate the root causes and identify alternative solutions.

Internal Auditing is a “HOT” profession.  Not only are we trusted advisors to management and the Board of Directors, but we are also getting long-deserved recognition from all levels of business professionals and regulators.  Now, it is time to figure out what you’re in for and what entails this rewarding career choice you’ve made.  This course will teach you the skills necessary to be an effective internal auditor. 

To become a successful auditor, a strong base of knowledge and an understanding of basic auditing skills are essential. With this program, new auditors, as well as non-auditors with internal control responsibilities, can learn the ins and outs of an audit from beginning to end. You will learn how to plan an audit, conduct effective audit interviews, sell and communicate your audit results, and perform follow-up on management’s corrective actions. 

Through team exercises, group discussion, and lectures, attendees will gain a foundation of knowledge that will allow them to properly prepare for and conduct a successful audit.
