Inspired Perspectives - Process Improvement: Benefits of Internal & Performance Audit

Webinar

Course Description:
For many organizations, limited resources and endless demands can make it difficult to look beyond day-to-day operations. Yet, the regulatory and competitive landscape demands strong internal controls. This webinar will discuss the importance of an internal audit and how it will help your organization reduce risk and improve operational performance. In addition, we will explore the benefit of a performance audit, which is a unique technique used to evaluate the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of an organizations' operations. It helps management ensure strategic objectives are being met and/or if they can improve upon them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review how an internal audit can monitor the myriad of compliance requirements
  • Discuss the difference between co-sourcing and outsourcing your internal audit
  • Outline the difference activities and functional support an internal audit function can provide your organization
