Integrated Process Auditing

– risk-oriented analysis of added-value chains, including process-oriented IT stages –


Subsequent to completion of this training and consultancy module, course participants are capable of implementing state-of-the-art auditing techniques in conducting a structured process and system audit in a practical environment. The course of instruction teaches participants methods for performing risk-oriented analysis of a company’s added-value chain and to structure audit objects into core and supportive processes according to the analytic methods formulated by Michael Eugene Porter. In this respect, current practice focuses not only on integrating commercial processes into a comprehensive audit examination, but also on scrutinizing the relevant IT operating systems as well.

In this respect, the focus is concentrated on an adequate business support of workflows regarding an IT alignment by means of IT operating systems. At the same time, the course’s study matter illustrates the meaningful utilization as well as the benefits and disadvantages of employing individual audits as well as examinations of processes.

And, not least, the internal audit team’s task within the framework of an integrated process examination is to measure the economic degree of target achievement in connection with corporate strategy.
