Course Title: Time-Tested Techniques for Effective Risk-Based Process Audits


Instructor: Ann M. Butera, CRP, President of The Whole Person Project, Inc


Synopsis: Since time and money always constrain the audit effort, one of the perennial challenges facing an auditor is the determination of what to audit. Risk-based process auditing enables auditors to focus resources on the areas of greatest vulnerability and impact. During this full-day course attendees will learn:

  • An overview of the risk-based methodology including how to begin with the end in mind
  • Techniques for risk identification, analysis and assessment
  • Techniques for control identification and evaluation

During this course, Ann M. Butera, President of The Whole Person Project, Inc. an organizational development consulting firm, will provide practical approaches attendees can use to:

  • Understand more rapidly the nature and vulnerabilities of the process or entity under review
  • Identify and assess the risks and controls within a particular entity or process to plan an audit's objectives more effectively and concentrate audit resources on the areas of greatest exposure
  • Understand and use the "Critical Linkage", a COSO-based, four-step thought process when performing risk-based audits
  • Use a comprehensive and consistent approach to identify and assess the control environment, risks, controls and monitoring devices during the audit's planning and detailed testing phases
  • Identify and assess inherent risks using a consistent approach
  • Differentiate control environmental elements, control activities and monitoring
  • Differentiate between controls and processes
  • Describe the attributes of an effective control design
  • Use a consistent approach to evaluate controls and determine which controls should be tested, and whether to place complete, partial or no reliance on them when assessing residual risk


Date: Wednesday, October 30, 2013
