Could Data Analytics Make Internal Control Exciting?

There is a clear link between the auditor’s understanding of internal control and their client’s push to becoming a data driven organization. Recognizing this link could be a win-win.

Our latest article “Could Data Analytics Make Internal Control Exciting” explores this relationship and can be gained if auditors were more thorough in assessing their client’s controls.

Working to harness the power of data analytics?

If your data analytics initiative is stalled, ask the right probing questions to clarify your path forward.

Auditors and finance teams are working diligently to add data analytics to their processes. Unfortunately, many of these initiatives move forward much slower than anticipated. If you find your firm in that position, our article Moving Forward with Data Analytics may help you get moving again.

Organizations turn to us when the gaps between the skills of their people and the needs of their business begin to affect the bottom line.

The result: an integrated, multi-pronged curriculum that provides clearly defined learning paths.

We develop training courses across multiple delivery modes, including live seminar, immersive simulations, e-learning and learning experience platforms.
