Effective Internal Audit Report Writing
Nov 27 - 28 Nov, 2014
Persuasive communication is an essential skill for auditors at all levels, and high-quality audit reports are a key communication tool. Communication by the auditor is one of the points of measurements by which the client values assess the overlap quality and effectiveness of the audit. Managers and associates who know how to help their staff members as well as themselves become better writers, can do help the audit to put points on the scoreboard. Most of the auditors find writing audit reports quite difficult, whereas the client usually find it difficult to understand what the factual findings are and what is expected as follow-up. Every audit report should be precise, accurate in its tone and further implications, and as well be user-friendly (i.e. readable and unbiased). The auditor’s report also must be short enough to be readable and long enough to be complete for each identified reading audience. These are the challenges auditors are facing.
