If you have been thinking about lean/agile ways of working, now is the time to bring this into practice and we can help with this one-day virtual course:

  • understand adding value, and waste
  • understand key lean and agile techniques to maximise value, address dissatisfiers, reduce waste and improve speed, without jeopardising assignment quality
  • refining assignment breadth and depth
  • leveraging known issues / knowing when to stop
  • shortening reports with killer facts and consequences that matter
  • revisiting metrics – who needs timesheets at the moment?
  • changes to behaviours and team ways of working.

Who should attend?

Experienced auditors, audit managers and heads of internal audit.
