Course Details


If you’re doing internal audits to ‘see if everyone is following our procedures’ you’re not doing yourself any favors. Audits can yield three powerful results to help your organization if you focus on three aspects:

  1. Do our processes give us the results we want?
  2. Are we managing risks well all through the end-to-end workflow?
  3. Are there any opportunities to make our processes better?

If your audits are not paying dividends by examining these three questions, you may want to rethink your approach. In addition to refining your focus, you can increase your abilities to get a better return on your Management System investment.  By focusing on results, managing risks and uncovering opportunities for improvement with the Layered Process Audit approach, the sky’s the limit!
