Operational Auditing “If you want to gather honey, don't kick over the beehive.”Dale Carnegie We don’t need no stinking operational audit!
We did one two years ago. Why do we need another?
Here come the functional department police again!
One increasingly important audit requirement that adds value to a business is Operational Auditing. In performing an Operational Audit, the audit function is in a unique position to influence total enterprise integration from both a top-down and bottom-up perspective contributing to improved operational performance. Improvement in operational performance contributes to the business bottom line.
Operational Audits examine the infrastructure of functions or departments and their collective ability to achieve the businesses strategic and tactical stated objectives. An operational audit evaluates the maturity level of each function and its ability to integrate across the business. The higher the maturity level the greater the business performance.
Since an Operational Audit requires a different approach it must utilize different tools and include benchmarking criteria as a means to contribute to total business performance. Tools and approaches are explored in this session to demonstrate their effectiveness. TakeawaysReduced business risksIdentification and reduction of waste across the integrated business
