Project Management Fundamentals


The audit engagement is a project, but rarely are proven project management methodologies used in managing internal audits.

Audits are regularly subject to delays, changes in scope, scope creep, resource shortages, and frequent struggles with timeliness. And rarely do formal Project Management courses translate easily into specific steps and techniques that can be leveraged in an audit. This course will translate formal project management skills into audit-specific methods and techniques that will help audit teams overcome common engagement challenges and immediately increase credibility by delivering on-time and focused audits.

The tools and techniques shared can be immediately implemented in every audit process. Real-life examples of failures and successes will be covered to highlight the learning process.
