Course Description

Course Description

The planning process is a key factor in the success of an audit engagement. It could mean the difference between an efficient and effective audit engagement and an engagement that went over budget and struggled to achieve all the audit objectives. 

There are a number of things that impact the planning

The purpose of any audit engagement is the achievement of the audit objectives. The success of the engagement may well depend on the planning. There are a number of things that impact the planning:

  • The number of available auditors
  • The auditor's experience levels
  • The time allotted
  • The complexity of the audit objectives
  • (In some cases) The location of the engagement

The lead auditor will generally do the engagement planning with a review and approval by the audit manager. How well the planning is done will have a significant impact on the success of that engagement.

This CPE Auditing Webinar is designed to give you the basics for efficient and effective audit engagement planning.

Learning Objectives
