Session Four: Ethics - Interactive Learning

Using a real-life case to highlight key points of ethical behaviour (incorporating the revised IPPF standards) you will have a chance to apply your skills against the case study which will take you through the phases experienced by an audit and investigation team.

Session Five: Successfully Managing Challenging Situations

Conflict is natural part of work dynamics. When managed well, it can be a healthy part of the communication of a group. This session teaches you how to direct conflict in a constructive direction.

Session Six: Agile

An iterative approach that helps teams deliver value to their customers faster and with fewer headaches. Instead of betting everything on a "big bang" launch, an agile team delivers work in small, but consumable, increments.

Session Seven: Analytics in Automation

Practical case studies in the use of analytics to identify fraud, improve audit efficiency and effectiveness, and how technology can be used to more effectively perform investigations
