Course Description

Every auditor tries to have quality audit findings. It means solid, fact-laden findings, accompanied by helpful, innovative auditor recommendations to help correct those findings, not only help by identifying significant shortfalls within the quality system, process or product but launch the corrective action process even before the audit report is written and distributed! 

In order to ensure that, it is required that the auditors use quantitative analysis methods. They can provide useful findings that have the potential to affect key areas such as product quality, reliability, safety, and more. Increased business understanding, better focus on risk, increased consistency across group audits, increased efficiency, easy data manipulation, increased chances of fraud detection, sharing useful information with clients, and chances of detecting certain types of fraud or the ability to identify inefficiencies and opportunities for a clients’ business – are some of the key benefits of implementing quantitative analysis in the audit process. In this Online CPE Auditing webinar, the speaker Richard Cascarino provides key methods that can be vital to the auditors for data analysis.
