Putting the Quality in Audit Reports

Duration: 90 Minutes
The objective of any report is to provide important information to management in the areas reviewed. It represents the end result of weeks of reviews, analyses, interviews and discussions. The quality of that report will have an impact on how well the report is understood and accepted.
Drafting Quality Audit Reports
Instructor: Jonnie T. Keith
Product ID: 502009
The best information and recommendations may not be acted upon if the report is poorly written. Poor quality reports can result in management:
  • Misunderstanding the information
  • Getting too little information
  • Getting too much information
  • Getting incorrect information
Ideally, the audit report should provide management with enough information to understand:
  • What was done
  • What was found
  • What management should do
How well you communicate that information is critical to getting management's acceptance of your findings and their agreement with your recommendations.
