Statistics and Data Analysis for Auditors

“The goal is to transform data into information, and information into insight” – Carly Fiorina, former President of Hewlett Packard

Too often we make an art form out of collecting data, while the “business” of analyzing it is neglected. Managing risk also means auditors must be trained in recognizing and responding appropriately to trends in process output data that is reported. Successful auditors of the future will need to have a clear understanding of basic statistics, process capability and data analysis, in addition to comprehensive auditing skills. In this course we provide an expansive review of sections V.c, V.d, V.e of the CQA body of knowledge.
