H7 International Audit Report Writing


Participants will learn audit report writing best practices and will apply these tools, techniques and strategies to write stakeholder-focused, action-oriented audit reports that achieve better results. Techniques to persuade in writing, the cultural impact of language, and stakeholder needs are keys to getting easy agreement of findings, risk categorization and recommendations.

Presentation and discussion of each topic will be followed by practice exercises and writing practice. Immediate feedback and coaching successfully closes the learning loop.  A writing assignment is completed prior to the workshop to set a baseline for each participant. Individual feedback will be provided to each participant on day 1.

The key to a successful writing training program is the post-workshop individual coaching: It promotes transfer of learning to the workplace and supports long-term improvement and increased confidence in writing. Each participant will be invited to submit a final case study report for review; feedback will take the form of distance coaching by email and telephone.
