Indicator-Supported Quality Management & Monitoring

– focused expansion of quality management and control within the internal audit function –


In support of qualitative audit control, course participants receive a broad overview of options for surveying quality indicators. These also are in conformance with quality assessment (QA) standard established by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the Quality Self-Assessment Tool (Q-SAT) developed by the Institute of Internal Auditing Switzerland = IIAS / Schweizerischer Verband für Interne Revision = SVIR) and the relevant standard issued by the German Institute for Internal Auditing (Deutsches Institut für Interne Revision = DIIR). This selection of indicators enables clients to measure the success of their audit operations continuously throughout the course of the audit process. On the basis of these prerequisites, clients can advance the development of their audit operations in a structured manner and communicate with their staff regarding strengths and weaknesses within the audit process.
