Meeting Title: “Agile Auditing”
In this discussion, attendees will be able to:
- Create meaningful, realistic, and achievable audit project plans (aka Audit Programs)

- Complete audit project ahead of budgeted time and reduce audit cost
Session Description: Jack be Nimble, Jack be Quick. Auditing today is coined with buzz words like “continuous” “dynamic” and “ongoing” as it related to everything from risk assessments, controls monitoring and reporting. But what does that really mean and how do you really do it? This provocative session challenges the current approach to audit projects. Through Agile AuditingTM we can improve audit delivery time, give better customer service, identify corporate problems and solve issues faster, and reduce rework and waste.
CPEs Offered: 4 Hours Continuing Professional Education
