Why Should you Attend
The webinar will give you information about the need to "sell" your audit findings by putting a dollar value on them. Management often is reluctant to make changes unless they can be justified. The justification provided by the auditor will very often be the tipping point to get a finding implemented.

Attendees will take away ideas about how to dollarize their findings, thus making it easier to make changes and to improve the internal control and safety and soundness of the company's operations.

Topic Background
Auditors always finish an audit by providing local management and the audit committee with findings that include recommendations to "fix" something. Generally, auditors have suggestions to implement a control or group of controls. Usually, the recommendations are sound. The problem that management has is deciding if it is worth implementing the auditor's findings from a cost-benefit point of view. Maybe the costs to accept the recommendations will be greater than the benefits; especially when the benefits are intangible (such as "there will be more accurate processing," "less time will be needed to complete an operation," "the reporting process will be easier to read and understand" etc). The auditor's findings often do not sell the notion that the audit recommendations are well worth implementing. That should change. This webinar will help bring about that change.
