Course Description

In the past few decades, organizations have discovered something incredible: the principles that have been used to create enormous successes in large projects can be applied to projects of any size to create amazing success. As a result, many employees are expected to understand project management techniques and how to apply them to projects of any size.

Internal auditors do not consistently apply basic project management skills throughout the audit process. Auditors tend to "know" how to audit thus believe regimented project management is not necessary.

This is not the case. This online CPE course examines project management roles and environments, the project life cycle and various techniques of work planning, and control and evaluation to achieve project objectives. The tools currently available to project managers are discussed throughout this course.

Specifically, how the project cycle mirrors the internal audit cycle, how to utilize project management for a more efficient and effective audit and how project management promotes transparent, continuous communication.

The CPE course provides participants with the skills and techniques necessary to embed project

management methods into the internal audit process. Formal project management methodologies

can help reduce and alleviate many of the struggles with delays, prioritization, scope, and timeliness

auditors routinely face. The tools and techniques shared can be immediately implemented in every

audit process.
