On Demand: Report Writing for Internal Auditors (Communicating Internal Audit Results)


Ever written an Internal Audit report that has not quite hit the mark? Do readers misinterpret your messages? Or are you new to Internal Audit and looking for guidance on how to deliver your audit findings efficiently and effectively?

The Internal Audit report is the primary deliverable of each Internal Audit assignment, but it is not 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. Do not let all that effort you put into your fieldwork go to waste!

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