Do you seem to get caught in an endless cycle of review and revision in your audit shop? In this course, we will diagnose and help resolve the root cause of your problems.  The Yellow Book requires the use of the elements of a finding—and if you use them correctly, the writing process is streamlined and your reports strengthened.  The author, Leita Hart-Fanta, has reviewed hundreds of findings and shares her insights on how to (and how not to!) coach the team to better writing behaviors. We cover IIA, AICPA, and Yellow Book reporting standards as well as tell you how to meet the standards.

Learning objectives:

  • Diagnose what is causing your team’s problems with business writing
  • Choose reporting expectations that are appropriate for your audit team including audience, tone, and length
