PROCESS MINING – FOR THE AUDIT PROFESSIONAL

Learn and experience in two days how to effectively use process mining as an audit professional for your financial audits.

Your colleagues and you are deemed to assess processes independently in order to identify risks and to avoid or identify possible fraud. In order to find out whether internal control measures are actually effective, you perform sampling to check whether written procedures are really followed. But can this be done in a more convenient and efficient manner? You have heard about process mining and the possibility to swiftly analyse all process variants. With this you can zoom in on potential process risks, bottlenecks and exceptions in a quick and easy way. This makes process mining a great technique to add to your toolbox.

Wondering how to visualise, test and empower internal control? Then this training suits you perfectly.
