Certified Agile Auditor Professional (cAAP)
Practical, step-by-step process to transform your department into a high-performing agile-based team CPE = 14
We can only audit at the speed of risk, if we update our audit process. Traditionally, internal audit completes a risk assessment once each year with only minor updates when needed. The audit plan is set, and the focus is on plan completion – not on gathering risk insights.
Traditional internal auditing is a broken model that is too slow, too historical, and too rigid. In today's dynamic business environment you have to be more proactive and agile, or you risk being seen as just another compliance function.
With a risk-based, agile approach, you can quickly see that an annual plan is no longer acceptable. In fact, most modern internal audit groups are already making the transition to agile auditing.
Audit plans must be flexible, able to adapt to cover critical and emerging risks at a speed that makes sense for our organizations. The agile audit methodology creates an audit plan that meets the needs of a modern, risk-based team.
In contrast to the traditional process, agile auditing is a risk-centric approach to developing and executing audits, based on a shorter audit lifecycle from assessment to reporting, which focuses on gaining and sharing insights with management related to the most urgent risks in an organization.
In this certification course, you will learn how to apply the 4 Agile Audit Values and 12 Agile Audit Principles to transform your department into a high-performing team capable of auditing at the speed of risk. Toby DeRoche will guide you through the concepts of a blended solution merging internal auditing with agile delivery in a practical approach that you can use immediately.
It's impossible to start implementing an agile approach from just readying an article, a book, or even listening to a one hour webinar. You need the detailed step-by-step end-to-end process that you can only get in this certification course ... a process that took 3 years to develop.
Whether you are just getting started with an agile audit approach, or want to improve what you are doing, you can't afford to miss out on this opportunity to avoid the mistakes most make.
What most internal auditors are missing is a model to use when implementing an agile audit approach, and a deep understanding of how to apply the theory in practice. Everyone else is keeping the discussion theoretical talking about big "A" versus little "a" and don't show you step-by-step what to do.
Have you fully considered what it is costing you to keep a traditional internal audit methodology instead of embracing the future with agile auditing?
