Report Writing for Internal Auditors - Online Classroom

Ever written an Internal Audit report that hasn't quite hit the mark?

Do your readers misinterpret the messages you are trying to convey? Wouldn't it be nice if communicating those messages became a whole lot easier? Alternatively, are you new to Internal Audit and looking for guidance to help you deliver your audit findings to the audience efficiently and effectively?

The report is an absolutely vital deliverable of each Internal Audit assignment, but it isn't an easy thing to do well. A well-written report can enhance the credibility of both you and the Internal Audit function, whereas a badly written report can have the opposite effect. Don't let all that effort you put into your fieldwork go to waste!

This practical course gives you hands-on experience in developing effective audit reports with a minimum of fuss.

Topics covered:

  • Objectives, readers, and structure
  • Making observations
  • Developing a paragraph
  • Getting the right tone
  • Being clear and concise
  • Readability
