Why This Course?

Strategic and Performance-based auditing and reporting is widely gaining popularity among the Board Audit Committee and Senior Management team. The Assurance team can be faced with considerable variety and ambiguity in undertaking this type of ‘value-adding’ audit assignment as it requires higher level of competency and skills in analysing management performance and practices.


The Assurance team will need to become familiar with a wide range of organizational subject matters such as strategic and performance management model, performance measurement criteria, performance outcome show-stopper and many more. In addition, the team also requires knowledge on the types of controls that should be implemented to ensure business performance can be attained besides learning to write logically and thoroughly on complex issues such as leadership and competency issues of the management.


This course is developed with the above challenges in mind to ultimately assist the Assurance team to have a strong grasp on the concept of strategic and performance management and to learn auditing steps/guidelines and consideration for each phase of the audit from Audit Planning, Audit Fieldwork and Audit Reporting.
